"Chobham Common is the legendary source of the Chobham Treacle Mine. The treacle in question was to be used by a garrison of troops stationed there before they shipped out to the Crimea, but the treacle was left in a small subterranean cave where it could cool and hopefully not ferment. In 1901, they began to burst and it began to run down the hillside."

There has been fantastic development around Jubilee Square in the past few years.

Watching the narrow boats sail along Basingstoke Canal is a real treat and gives Woking its countryside appeal.
