Forgive me, I should’ve posted these before today. On Friday the 10th March I was in the audience, at Surrey Heath Museum, to listen to Trefor Hogg’s talk on Charles Raleigh Knight, the founder of Camberley.
Trefor is right to characterise Charles Raleigh Knight as a true Victorian gentleman. Though helpfully benefiting from inherited wealth, Charles Raleigh Knight strived to put his wealth to good use. Trefor’s well presented slides describe Knight’s interesting life – a gentleman cadet at Sandhurst, soldier, artist, prison governor and prison reformer, railway investor, property developer, church builder, and friend to the working man.
Trefor has generously allowed me to publish the slides of his talk. Click on the upward pointing arrow in the screen below to expand to full screen size.
