Can You Identify These Locations? (19)

The mystery photos shown on the previous post appear to have stumped all of you.

No suggestions at all to the location of the house that I still think is somewhere close to Guildford town centre – perhaps in the London Road or Epsom Road area.

So which part of the canal in Guildford is shown here?

We do hope to crack this one – even if it means walking all the streets in that part of Guildford until we find it!

Earlier this week I updated the post following a photo being emailed to me of the Worplesdon Place Hotel – with a suggestion that this is location of the second photo.

I can see the line of thinking. There are definitely some similarities, but unless the building has been substantially altered at some stage, I do not think it’s the place we are looking for.

On to this week’s, and two seasonal snowy scenes that were published as postcards about 100 years ago.

The first is titled ‘Guildford Canal’. I think I know the location, but can you add a post and perhaps confirm, or prove me wrong?

You might want to say that you think is is between certain lock gates, for example. Or, upstream from ……, and so on.

Men pose for an Edwardian photographer after shifting snow. Where is the location?

The second photo shows some men clearing a footpath after a heavy fall of snow. I don’t think the location should prove too difficult, or will it?

As always, leave a post below and we will publish them all in about a week’s time and confirm the answers.

  1. Ian Plowman says:

    Picture One Is by the Lock behend the Theatre looking towards what is now the water works

    Picture Two – Castle grounds

  2. Bernard Parke says:

    1) The cut from the river to bye pass Millmead Lock towards the old Town Mill,

    2) Down hill slope to a mansion.

    Only two laces that I know of with a downhill slope are to Clandon Park or Mount Browne.

    Wide of the mark I am afraid
