This book provides a fascinating history of the Surrey town of Leatherhead

Although at times known as the county town of Surrey, Leatherhead has never lost its village identity. Its strategic location attracted the Romans and then the Saxons, who built a Minster church and made it a centre of royal authority. Medieval Leatherhead was a place of some importance, but after a Tudor heyday it declined until London revived its fortunes. Chapters include:

  • Prehistory to the Middle Ages, c.4000BC to 600 AD
  • Leatherhead in the early Middle Ages 600-1250
  • Leatherhead in the late Middle Ages 1250-1558
  • Leatherhead in the Elizabethan and Stuart period 1558-1714
  • Leatherhead in the Age of the Georgians 1714-1837
  • Leatherhead in the Victorian era 1837-1901

  • Leatherhead in the twentieth century
