The Weybridge Diggers – a talk by David Taylor
Hurst Park School, Hurst Road, KT8 1QS

David has written several books on the history of Cobham, Surrey as well as contributing to a variety of other publications such as the Surrey Archaeological Society Collections and Country Life magazine. It was David’s early passion for local history that led him to research the history of the now internationally famous eighteenth century landscape garden at Painshill. (See Talk by Cherrill Sands - Wednesday 26 April 2017, 8 pm).
A particular interest in the 17th century has led David to make a study of the life and times of Gerrard Winstanley and the Diggers, a nationally important revolutionary group which sprang up in the local area at the time of the English Revolution. It is this subject that will be the theme of his talk, so put the date in your diaries now.
