About This Book

Surrey reveals an indomitable character, in its life and scenery, which has survived the relentless advance of London. Dr Brandon’s first edition of this book, in 1977, was widely praised for its original and perceptive analysis of the tension between the ancient rural country and its burgeoning and intrusive neighbour, the metropolis. For a long time the most popular book on Surrey in print, it has gone through several reprints with some revisions. With its taut, concise yet comprehensive text, this edition will be as warmly welcomed in those parts of ancient Surrey now urban or suburban as in the remaining rural areas. Dr Brandon has ensured that this book will retain its popularity.
