KNAPHILL & BROOKWOOD
The boundaries of what I think of a Brookwood & Knaphill 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 I have included Brookwood Cemetery & the West Hill Golf Club in this area, but the Worplesdon Golf Club and what is now generally referred to as 'Worplesdon Hill' are in the 'Mayford' section. The Brookwood Hospital estate is here, but Inkerman is included in St Johns (together with The Hermitage Estate). Some parts of what we now think of as Knaphill were historically within Horsell (such as Knaphill Nursery), whilst other parts that some might think of as in Knaphill when they were developed are more logically included in Goldsworth Park now. I hope it is not too confusing!
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.
