The lock-keeper’s cottage at Stoke and the building that is Norfolk House which forms a row of shops on the west side of the upper High Street were the locations of last week’s mystery photo and mystery date.

Can you spot the date in Roman numerals on Norfolk House in the upper High Street?

Not too many of you replied – perhaps the pictures were a little tricky?

Taken from the roof of a church, do you know where this is?

This week (see above) we have a view taken from the roof of a Guildford church. Can you recognise where it is?

Where can you see this date in Guildford?

And as for the mystery date…. do you know on what sign this date appears and where it is? The picture was taken by Richard Bailey.

If you think you know the answers, leave a reply in the box below. All replies will be posted at the same time in about a week’s time, along with a new post with the answers to this week’s photo and mystery date, and the next pair of images.

    Looking from the top of St.Nicholas Church and up The Mount. The car at the bottom of the picture is turning right into Park Street.

    The view from St. Nicolas Church shows the junction of High St., Portsmouth Road, The Mount and Park St. The building on the left at the foot of The Mount was the Weyside Commercial Hotel, long gone. Widening of Park St. resulted in the loss of the property on the corner at the foot of High St. Gone, too, are the cottages in the top right of the photo, accessed (from memory) by steps from Park St.
