Where Is This? No.34

The aerial view of Park Barn and its then new secondary school, seen in last week’s post, was correctly identified by many readers. Click here to see the post and their comments at the foot of it.

And the mystery clock, can, of course, be seen at Guildford railway station.

Do you recognise where this is?

This week’s mystery picture shows a group of children in fancy dress pictured at the time of their VE-Day or VJ-Day party at the end of the Second World War in 1945.

There are a wealth of characters here, including a few nurses, farmers and soldiers, a policeman, one dressed as Charlie Chaplin and another with a pram converted into a ice cream van!

Do you recognise the village pub that stands on top of a hill? The name of the pub is a reference to something Charles II did.

And where is the mystery clock, as photographed by Alistair Fulton?

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

    The Mystery pub is the Royal Oak in Wood Street Village. Charles I didn’t hide in here but in a tree called the Royal Oak
    The clock is on Holy Trinity Church in High Street. It was Guildfords Cathedral until the new Cathedral in Stag Hill was consecrated

    The pub is The Royal Oak at Wood Street.

    The clock is on Holy Trinity Church tower. Information on the clock and its associations with the Onslow family are on the church website, on the “Buildings” pages.
