History doesn’t just mean looking at the Egyptian Mummies at the British Museum. Or watching Time Team on the television. History is happening every day and Dorking Museum really wants to have a part of it.

All the photographs that you snap on a day to day basis are capturing a piece of history.

The following links are photographs that have been recently added to our collections
