Come with us back through time as we discover the rich history of how the Coming of the Railway changed Woking, developing an understanding of continuity and change within the local area. We will look at how and why Woking has transformed from farming and industry to commerce over the years, through looking at archive material and handling artefacts from over the centuries.
