An illustrated talk on ‘Brooklands through the Ages’ – from the Iron Age period right through to modern times will be held on Thursday, 23 January at 8pm in the large hall of the St James’ Church Parish Centre. It will offer insights about the Brooklands area covering its origins, history, people and other interesting facts.
Brooklands today is very much shaped by the legacy of the motor racing circuit built in 1907. The early history of the area, how the circuit came into being and its subsequent development all yield some fascinating insights about the life and times of people in Weybridge.
The speaker is Steve McCarthy, whose background is as a professional engineer. His interest in cars and local history has led him to study Brooklands wider than just the well chronicled aspects of the racing circuit.
All are welcome, Weybridge Society Members are free and non-members £3.
