Last week’s mystery date is on a drain hopper at the Royal Grammar School.

By David Rose

The technical college building in Park Street, although in the process of being demolished in the photo, was recognsed by a number of people last week. Click here to see the post and their replies.

And the mystery date that can found at the Royal Grammar School in the High Street was also correctly identified by a number of you. It’s on one of the drain hoppers, quite high up.

Do you know where these buildings once stood and what is there today?

This week’s mystery picture shows a group of buildings that are long gone. Do you recognise the location? and what’s there now?

Do you know where this is?

The mystery date can be seen in Guildford town centre. What type of structure is it on?

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.

    The buildings were at the foot of North Street, by the junction with Friary Street. Today part of Phoenix Court occupies the site.

    1882 is the date on Onslow Bridge, Bridge Street, when it was opened.

    It is the entrance to Friary Street and further up North Street to Phoenix Court where the arched entrance to Fremlins Yard can be seen on the left hand side of the picture. Nandos is now on the corner of Friary Street.(previously Lloyds bank)
    The date sign 1882 is on the Onslow Bridge (also called the “new bridge”), in Bridge Street.

    We believe that the corner is the corner of the Mount at the bottom of the Portsmouth Road. The buildings have been replaced by offices.
    The date we are not so sure about but guess that it may be on the bridge if Bridge Street.
