The Surrey Dendrochronology Project found that the earliest probable date of construction of a building
which we have recorded is c1254 Forge Cottage,Dunsfold.
The Project also found that the Great Oak Door, St Peter's Church,Old Woking
(not recorded by us) dates from 1106-1138.
We believe only 3 church doors in England are considered to be of earlier dates -
The 'Pyx' door at Westminster Abbey; St Batholomews at Hadstock, Essex; and
the 'Gundulf' Door at Rochester Cathedral.
