The vintage view seen in the previous post was looking down Haydon Place from North Street.

Well done to all who replied with the correct answer.

The quirky picture showing a plaque can be found beneath the Onslow Bridge on Bridge Street. It can be seen from the towpath and again several readers knew the answer.

Click here for the previous post with all the replies at the foot of it, with extra details supplied by readers.

Do you recognise this view?

The vintage picture this time shows another bridge on the River Wey, a little way downstream from the town centre. Do you know where this is?

Where can this bench be found?

The quirky picture is of a wooden seat in the shape of an oak leaf. Do you know at which Guildford beauty spot this can be found?

If you know the answers and perhaps can add some more details, please leave a reply in the box below. I’ll give the answers in about two week’s time (hopefully) with the next images.

And please remember to include your full name in the reply box.

    Looks like the bridge on Woking Road next to the Surrey Advertiser building.

    The bridge is the one carrying Woking Road over the northern branch of the river.

    The southern branch leads to Stoke Mill. The house is between the river and the road leading towards the GBC depot.

    The bench is on Pewley Down about 60 metres on to the down from the end of Fort Road.

    There is a Google 360-degree streetview which shows it.

    The vintage picture is the bridge on Woking Road with the Rowbarge just past the bridge on the right.

    The bridge is one of the two Stoke Bridges built in 1926; I think the house is the one beside the entrance to the Woking Road Depot, but with different windows.

    The quirky seat is on Pewley Down.

    The bridge, I think, is one of the two bridges over the Woking Road near Stoke Mill.

    The seat, I think, is on Pewley Downs, accessed from the end of Fort Road.

    Woking Road bridge, the picture taken from the Stoke Lock side of the bridge, on the right is the house on the corner of the entrance to the council depot.

    Pewley Down.This oak leaf-shape seat is on the lower slope just past the sundial with South Warren Farm below.

    The roof of the houses in the distance above the seat is Northdown Lane and Warwick’s Bench Road.

    The Woking Road bridge.

    The wooden seat is at Newlands Corner, a possible venue for the long-awaited theme park!
