  1. Hi there. I’m researching my family history which centres around Camberley. I’m trying to find where Bath Place and Bridge Cottages were on the London Rd in Yorktown area. From the 1891 census they were living near the Lamb and in the 1991 near the Globe Inn. Also the picture you have of Yorktown school may well have my father in it. He would have been there from 1914 to abt 1924. His family name was Preston, his father George worked for Overs and his father Charles (born 1854) was in furnishing and may well have worked for Overs too. Have you any knowledge of, or know where I can find out about, properties in the Yorktown end of Camberley
    Best wishes

    PS. My mother, Enid Cotterell and born in Crowthorne, was an apprentice to Wellards in the High St in about 1924. She then went on to work in London.

    • Hello Robert, I suggest that you contact Surrey Heath Museum in the first instance to find out how they can help you. You might also like to look at the publications of the Surrey Heath History Club which the museum sells. Local historian Ken Clarke has written at length about the pubs. Good hunting!
