Does anyone have access to old maps of Woking... indeed of Surrey in general from around the late 1800s?

 

I want to Games Master the WotW RPG and I think maps would be a good thing to have!

 

Cheers in advance,

 

Matt

Hello,

I had an old map of Woking which was made in 1895 so just about the right time for TWOTW. I used it as part of our foyer display when we did our production back in 2002. I also managed to Photoshop it and super-impose a modern map of Woking over it to show how the town has changed. Unfortunately, after the get-out, it got lost so all I have left is my scan that I did. I have attached the image here for you.
I obtained the original map from an on-line company called Elstead Maps who specialise in old county maps but they no longer seem to do them otherwise I would have bought a replacement.

Anyway, here is the image. You can clearly see the railway and the river which makes it easy to line up with a modern map.

cheers,

Cylinder

Try the Surrey History Centre, Goldsworth Road, Woking.  They will have one!
