WOKING ON FILM

There are a number of old films on the British Pathe, BFI and other websites showing items filmed in (or relating to) our area. As you can see most feature the National Rifle Association at Bisley, the motor racing track at Brooklands or the Mosque at Maybury, which at the time appears to have held a special fascination for the film-makers.
