Cobham: A History by David Taylor


Cobham: A History by David Taylor

This Surrey village dates from Roman Times, which by Domesday Book (1086) was still a small settlement on the River Mole. The river was not navigable, but road, canal and railway encouraged the development of the three communities of Street Cobham, Church Cobham and Tilt Cobham. The story of a community of wide variety and one of the largest parishes in the country - from non-conformity to Utopia, from royal mistresses to philosophers, from stately homes to car manufacture.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

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

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

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?
