Most of what you see in Woking today has come in the last 150 years in the middle of the town there are very few buildings more than 40 years old. But Woking does have a history. There are three burial mounds on Horsell Common which are 3000 years old and there was a small Roman settlement east of Old Woking. About 1300 years ago monks came from Chertsey and built a church, probably where Old Woking church is now, to serve the whole district. Vikings destroyed this but by 1066 it had been rebuilt and a small village grew around it.
Apart from land along the River Wey which could be used for agriculture most of the area of the modern borough was heathland like Horsell and Chobham Commons. There were isolated farms and small churches at Horsell, Pyrford, Sutton and Byfleet and by 1300 some of the richer people and servants of the king had built larger manor houses in these places (but not Horsell). The kings loved hunting and large areas formed forest which meant they were kept for the court to hunt deer and the local people had few chances to improve themselves. The manors at Woking and Sutton grew more important and were often owned by the king; at Woking Henry VIII rebuilt the old house as a small palace and often entertained his court and foreign visitors there: at Sutton the Weston family were given the manor and built Sutton Place, one of the first large houses built in brick and not with any means of defence.
Woking Palace was not used much after the time of Henry VIII and after James I sold it the building was demolished to build Hoe Place and other houses around Woking. The Weston family built canals and locks along the River Wey so that boats could reach from the Thames as far as Guildford and this meant that Old Woking grew into a small town. With this improvement in transport some market gardens opened on the heath to provide vegetables for London, which was growing rapidly, and by the end of the 18th century it was found that while the soil was poor it was good for growing plants such as rhododendrons and several plant nurseries opened, mostly lasting until the late 20th century.
In 1838 the railway reached Woking Common, on the site of the present station, on its way from London to Southampton and in 1845 a branch line opened to Guildford. Woking Station thus became an important junction for goods and passenger traffic, and London could now be reached within an hour. This did not bring an instant growth to the town, but it was now easy to reach London and there was a lot of land around the station which had little value for agriculture and was therefore cheap to buy from the Earls of Onslow, who owned the commons. First to realise this were those who saw that the London graveyards were becoming overcrowded and unhealthy: in 1852 the London Necropolis Company was formed to acquire land for burials out of town and came to buy 2000 acres of land based on Brookwood. The cemetery laid out on 400 of those acres was, and is, the largest private cemetery in Europe, and taking advantage of the railway passing by they ran trains for coffins and mourners from a special station near Waterloo into the cemetery where there were two stations. These special trains stopped when bombed in 1941.
