This beautiful valley lying between Dorking and Guildford has attracted visitors and settlers for centuries. The reliable supply of flowing water through the valley attracted early industry in the form of mills and other activities that depended on water power. Evidence of these early activities have left their mark on the landscape.
A fascinating photographic record exists of life and times in the valley over the last century and this book includes a sequence of the best of these images through the villages of Gomshall, Shere, Albury, Chilworth and Shalford and the picturesque houses and landscape in-between.
This is the author's second book in the Archive Photographs series and follows the volume, Around Cranleigh.
