HORSELL & WOODHAM
The boundaries of what I think of a Horsell & Woodham 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 there are some parts that were historically in Horsell which I have included in the 'Knaphill' area (such as Knaphill Nursery) or 'Goldsworth' (such as the Lakeview Estate), whilst I have generally included all the area north of the Basingstoke Canal within Horsell, even though the old boundary was along Boundary Road and Horsell Moor (so that the Boundary Road Industrial Estates is now in the 'Town Centre' section, but the houses of Horsell Moor are here).
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.
