1950s Surrey

102. Surrey – Godalming

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.

Godalming is a lovely town directly south of London. It still looks similar to these:

These next three were taken minutes after each other, but I guess something went wrong with the exposure as I spent ages trying to get the second and third pictures visible. They are of The Refectory, which is still going.

Godalming Crown Court. I love the three-wheeler through the arch.

These are the Ford’s Building from 1801 at 130 Ockford Road. It took me a little while to find then now on Google maps as a huge poplar tree now stands where the house dead centre previously stood.  If you do a search for britishlistedbuildings and Ford’s Buildings, there is more info including the fact they were altered in 1970. They are Grade II listed now.

They really look up to no good.
