Waitrose, South Street
Waitrose, South Street
Large Waitrose supermarket in South Street, opened in October 2014. Previously the site housed a branch of the booksellers, Waterstones, with a smaller Waitrose branch beyond which had traded from March 1961 until closure in March 2013 to allow the new development to take place. For a photo showing the previous buildings, looking in the other direction from further along South Street, see TQ1649 : South Street, Dorking - in that photo Waterstones, on the corner with Junction Road, is already boarded up following closure, but the previous Waitrose branch, nearer the camera, is still trading.

From 1902 to 1932, this corner was the site of the offices of Dorking Urban District Council together with Dorking Post Office, both housed in the prominent buikdign to seen in the left background in the Francis Frith photo from 1906 at LinkExternal link.
