In 1895, Wells was an established writer when he married his second wife, Catherine Robbins, moving with her to 143 Maybury, Road, Woking, Surrey.
The small terrace house
has A blue plaque (a permanent sign installed in a public place to commemorate a link between that location and a famous person)
in this case H.G Wells.
From here he wrote...
...The War of the Worlds !
From this house he spent his mornings walking or cycling in the surrounding countryside, and his afternoons writing. The original idea for The War of the Worlds came from his brother, during one of these walks, pondering on what it might be like if alien beings were to suddenly descend on the scene and start attacking its inhabitants. The War of the Worlds has been both popular and influential, spawning half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, various comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors.
