Fancy this quintessentially English cottage next to a church? It's for sale at a guide price of £480,000
The earliest written record of 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 and 42 villagers and the stunning church 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 from 1665, which is now cottages, did.
1 Church Cottage, Church Street, Old Woking remains to this day. Now a stunning listed period property, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage (in the centre of the picture) sits just at the foot of the famous St Peter’s Church.
