PREVIOUSLY FEATURED ON THE heritagewalks.org WEBSITE,
WHERE CAN STILL BE FOUND DETAILS OF ALL HERITAGE WALKS, TALKS, EXHIBITIONS & PUBLICATIONS.
BYFLEET, WEST BYFLEET & PYRFORD
The boundaries of what I think of a West Byfleet, Byfleet & Pyrford may not be the same as your interpretation, and any local authority or ecclesiastical boundaries may well have changed over time, so if you cannot find what you are looking for in this section, it may be in a neighbouring area or perhaps one of the more general sections.
For instance the Sandy Lane/East Hill/Maybury Estate and the Sheerwater areas were historically in Pyrford, but the former are included in the 'Heathside' section with the latter under the 'Town Centre' section. The houses of Old Avenue, however, are included here as is Hollies Avenue & Woodlands Avenue (which were originally marketed as the 'Sheerwater Estate' back in the 1930's). There may also be some parts of what is now considered 'Weybridge' that were historically in Bylfeet included in this section (such as Brooklands and parts of St George's Hill).
I have tried to divide the archive into logical sections to make finding things easier, but this is not a comprehensive list of items in my archive, just an indication of some of the pre-2000 items I hold, so if you cannot find what you are looking for please ask.
Not everything has been scanned, but those that have are highlighted in blue on the list, so if you find something listed in white that you are interested in please let me know and I will try to get it up on this site as soon as possible.
