About this photo

East of the M25 and the older River Wey Navigation, Byfleet is a suburban village; although it is built along winding lanes, it is architecturally disappointing. At its east end, down by the River Wey, is a superb brick manor house of the 1680s, which has been much altered subsequently and is now divided into apartments. Back in the village centre, things are less coherent. The Lloyds TSB bank (right) in Bedford Park style of 1879 promised greater things than its dismal surroundings in the High Road.
