Old West Surrey by Gertrude Jekyll


Old West Surrey by Gertrude Jekyll

Old West Surrey was first published in 1904, when Gertrude Jekyll was England's most famous gardener, well known for her partnership with Edwin Lutyens, and for her prolific writings on the subject. But this book is different; it is her hymn to her happy childhood and her acutely-observed record of rural life and homes in the country around Godalming. Whether you are after solid local history or a pretty picture book then this is the book for you. Surrey History

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

Alison Layland

You can trust Lovereading to show unbiased reviews by actual, ordinary readers that help likeminded booklovers choose their next great read.

Linda Hill

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.
