Wonersh Street, circa 1915

This is one of my favourite cards of Wonersh. My several times Great Grandfather, John Butcher (1795 - 1877) inherited one of the cottages on the right hand side.

Early on in my career I worked in the next village. I would routinely walk between Bramley and Wonesh, past these cottages on my way to the Grantley Arms for a sandwich and drink. It always felt very "warm and fuzzy" to be walking along the path that John walked, around 150 years previous.
