English: Old Woking is a former village now considered part of the town of Woking, Surrey, and is located 2.5 miles (4 km) to the southeast of Woking town centre. Woking Palace was important in the times of Henry VIII. The James Walker factory has been redeveloped into a dense residential housing estate. Hoebridge Preparatory School and Hoebridge Golf Course lie within Old Woking. The west door to St Peter's Church in Church Street is the oldest door in Surrey and probably the third oldest in the country having been dated by dendrochronology to the reign of Henry I. The four planks making up the door very likely came from a single tree which was over 270 years old when it was felled.The tree must have grown from an acorn which germinated in the reign of Egbert (802-39).
