Surrey residents are lucky to be immersed in a rich landscape of ancient hedgerows, mystical woods and historic buildings.
This book is about the buildings in the parish of Nutfield. Although Nutfield was already an established community with a church and a mill at the time of Domesday in 1086, none of the buildings survive from that time.
Even the church which existed then has been rebuilt, altered and enlarged to the extent that we are unsure whether there are any fragments from the original.
Nutfield Historic buildings and landscape sets out how the natural characteristics dictated the settlement patterns and farming practices of Nutfield from Domesday to the twentieth century.
This book forms a valuable addition to the corpus of local history for the county of Surrey and is recommended to any historian seeking to understand the influences on the development of settlement within a single parish.
