An account by A J Munby, poet, barrister and diarist, of his first visit to Ripley and its environs in 1863. Reproduced are extracts from his diaries detailing what he then saw and experienced. The entries are commented upon and compared with today (1983). Illustrated with pictures of places and buildings, some as seen and many as described by Munby. Includes other comparative data such as details of trades and professions taken from the 1861 census of Ripley plus a modern wild flower survey. A fascinating book to accompany the reader on a very pleasant walk in and around the village.
First published 1983, 4th reprint 2008

    This really is an excellent book for locals. The author’s descriptions of Ripley, the green, the Wey Navigation, Wisley Common 150 years ago make fascinating reading. He casually describes his walk from Ripley, across Wisley Common to catch the London train in Weybridge as though he were popping out for the next bus! Very good value too.
