    Cranleigh in Surrey is often claimed to be the largest village in England, and tensions have long existed between those who saw expansion as a good thing and those who feared the loss of its traditional identity. Extensively illustrated with period photographs, prints and maps, this book traces Cranleigh's development from prehistory to the 20th century, through its 18th-century decline and subsequent revival through the efforts of an energetic Victorian vicar.
