History of Woking
The earliest reference to Woking is a grant made by Pope Constantine in 708 for a monastery in ‘Wochingas’. There is also evidence of Roman settlements in Old Woking. Woking was previously a village, presently known as Old Woking and the present town was previously a heathland. When the Railway and the Basingstoke canal came to the town, it was more accessible from London and it started to develop, with the shortage of land in London.

The town first started as a burial ground and about 400 acres were initially used for a cemetery. Later, the rest of the land, bought by the London Necropolis, was used for property development. The town reflects a Victorian origin, though today you find many shops, offices and new apartments. It stands on the river Wey and used to be a market town, with a long street, a post office, holding a fair on Tuesdays.
