[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The earliest written record relating to Woking relates to the foundation of a minster dedicated to St Peter by a nobleman, in 675 AD. The Domesday Book of around 1086 AD lists two major lands, forty-two villagers and smallholders listed and the stunning church featured above is also mentioned. The manor was worth £15 and 25 shillings to the sheriff.

Imagine being able to purchase at the same price in today’s market.

Old Woking remained a small village through the medieval period probably based on agriculture. The manor of Old Woking seems to have been in Royal hands for much of the medieval period.

By the 17th century Woking was a small market town but little survives from this period however, the former market house which are now cottages, from 1665, did.

1 Church Cottage, Church street remains to this day. Now a stunning, listed and period property, this 3-bedroom 2-bathroom cottage sits just at the foot of the famous St Peter’s church. St Peters is an unusually large medieval church for Surrey and is listed Grade I.

Woking is one of the major office towns within the South East market, due to its excellent rail and road links. Major occupiers in Woking include SAB Miller, Cap Gemini, WWF, Petrofac and Yum.
