Maybury Village History
A brief on Maybury History & Area Info:
The name ‘Maybury’ is a relatively recent one, the area previously being called ‘Bunkers Hill’ or ‘Frailey Hill’.
The area was originally a ‘squatter settlement’ on the edge of Woking Heath. Man has lived in the Maybury area for many centuries.
In the 1950s two prehistoric axes, thought to date from the early Bronze-Age, were found in the area – possibly connected to the Bronze-Age burial mounds on nearby Horsell Common.
