      Please could you tell me the history of the area by Egham station and manorcroft, which was once the primary school and a bit further on, magna carts annexe in the 1970’s? I have recently been given a bacon’s map of Surrey, which I am trying to put a date to. Was there an airfield (ww1) on that site? I was born and raised in Egham Hythe 1958- 1975 and most of the family are from Egham and son found the old map at a flea market in Belgium, where we live: I was so pleased, and have enjoyed the memories that it offered! But this bit of info would date the map more accurately: I am quite sure it is certainly , circa 1900 to pre ww1, judging by the illustrated cover :a very early car, a person on a bike and her fashionable cycling gear. Thank you so much for any help.I often visited the museum as a child!
