OLD WOKING, KINGFIELD & WESTFIELD
The boundaries of what I think of as Old Woking, Kingfield and Westfield 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, apart from the Hoe Place & Hoebridge areas, most of this section covers places to the south of the Hoe Stream, although Woking Leisure Centre is included in the 'Heathside' section along with Woking Park. Exactly where Westfield ends and Mayford/Sutton Green begin is debatable, but as there are few documents for that area, it is not a problem (yet). You will notice that items connected with Woking Football Club are also in this section (even if they are not strictly connected with the Kingfield Stadium - i.e. the Amateur Cup Final at Wembley).
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.
