36 members of the Woking History Society plus 2 from the Send and Ripley History Society visited the Muslim Burial Ground on Horsell Common for a very interesting tour and talk by Elizabeth Cuttle (from the Horsell Common Preservation Society). This was followed by a visit to the Barrows with a talk by Richard Savage.
