The Oaks

This dates from 1806. Engraving – The Oaks, Surry –Seat of the Earl of Derby.
Drawn by Gyfford engraved by Sparrow.
Published by J Robins & Co. Ivy Lane London
Date 1806.
This was for publication in Dr Hughson’s description of London. However it was not included in the final document.

Not sure if this is of interest or not, I always considered the Oaks Park to be just within Banstead, see what you think.

I was surprised to see this photo - a view of The Oaks, because I have exactly the same print framed and hanging on my wall here in Sweden!

I lived in Croydon Lane, and The Oaks was only a short walk away; it felt as though it was part of my Banstead background.

I have a copy of Volume 1 of a book published in 2013 titled "The History of the Oaks" by Paul Williams. More info can be found on
