FIND THESE STEPS – At 20 Dorking Road., and from the lower level from Prince of Wales Park
Ms Irvine-Smith notes that Dorking Street’s name comes from Dorking in Surrey, England.
Somewhere in the biography of Shirley Smith by Sarah Gaitanos there is a mention that Bill Sutch grew up on Dorking Street, but I can’t find it exactly.
Here, the Dorking Street steps are a lovely entrance into the Prince of Wales park and past the small, but usually busy, community garden.
