Can you name this road?

The row of shops in Stoughton Road at Bellfields and the Alexandra Laundry were the views featured last time.

Well done to Bernard Parke and Ian Plowman for getting both right and the Baileys for correctly identifying the Bellfields one, but just a few hundred yards out with the second!

This time two more for you to have a go at.

The first shows a road cleaning vehicle at work. It’s a Dennis-made vehicle and was probably new and just out from the factory at Woodbridge and on test. Which road is it? The chimney is the background was at a brickworks – now long gone.

The second picture (below) shows a road in Guildford that has changed completely. Still busy, but where.

If you think you know, 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 photos, and the next pair of images.

Do you remember when it looked like this along here?

    1) Junction of The Chase and Old Palace Road, Guildford Park with chimney of the brick field from where the hand thrown cathedral bricks were baked. Co-op on the left.

    2) Ladymead in the 1970s.

    The second picture looks likely to be of Ladymead? But I can’t be sure.

    Photo 1 Old Palace Road, to the left is The Chase and on the right would have bee Jubilee Stores and Mrs James The Chemist.The Astolat pub was built in the early 1960s and I think there were allotments there before that at the time the photo was taken. The building mid left was the CWS store made up of three stores a greengrocer, grocery and butcher. The chimney is the old brick works – where Guildford Park Avenue stands. I think it closed in the early 1960s.

    I grew up in Old Palace Road (1956-67) and remember Dennis vehicles being test driven, mainly buses and fire engines. I went to Guildford Park Primary School in Ludlow Road from 1961 and can remember the brick works and then the houses being built.

    Photo 2 has me stumped, from the car reg it must be circa 1980 so is it Woking Road? Looking at the width of the road it is obviously a main road.
