It was around this time that the roof of the great tower was removed, probably for use as building material. The engine and coaches were all fully restored and in magnificent condition. A further 34 of the properties currently qualify for short term exemption. After Henry III died in the castle had a chequered history in terms of its preservation. Central 2 - 1 Defence Force.

Antiques Roadshow presenter Katherine Higgins chose Chalk Hill, a modernist family home that also operates as an art gallery, in Chantry Hill Road as the location to film the charity auction she hosts as the grand finale of the series.

Katherine Higgins lives in Guildford. Neighbours popping in and out for a chat, everyone was helpful. We had some good shops that we could rely upon. There was Sparrow the butchers, a wool shop, a post office and a newsagent. As children, we used to get a sixpence pocket money for a few sweets and a comic.

We had a shop that sold vegetables and even a library just inside the recreation ground. Sadly it has all gone. Surrey Advertiser 17th July Henry Allingham, who was the last survivor of the Battle of Jutland had celebrated his th birthday on 6th June , had been quoted as putting his longevity down to 'cigarettes, whiskey and wild, wild women' although during the sitting he told Allison that he always started the day with the healthy option of a full English breakfast.

During the course of the sittings he told me that he still became upset when he thought about the Great War and, in fact hadn't spoken about it for 80 years.

It was only when he became that people started asking about it. Before that he had led a very ordinary life devoted to his wife and daughters, both of whom, to his great sadness are now dead. I discovered that in some ways, however, he was not ordinary at all.

He bought himself a mountain bike at the age of 90 and lived on his own, looking after himself until he was Interestingly, he doesn't look that old, compared to some others I have painted.

He still has a great zest for life which include starting each day with a full English breakfast. Based on research from local businesses and organisations the data is intended to assist with the future planning of the council's economic development strategy and action plan, and to also help the council assist businesses in future development.

The report highlights Guildford's positive position as one of the most prosperous locations in the south-east boosted by a "thriving local economy, a highly skilled workforce and high levels of entrepreneurial activity".

The report does warn however of overdependence on the public and service sectors, and recommends planning for greater diversification into new and expanding business areas. Over half of the businesses surveyed expect to increase their floor space requirements within the next 5 to 10 years.

The architect's model, which probably dates back to the s, was labeled 'Guildford Town Centre: The 3-D model measures seven feet in length and contains hundreds of miniature buildings and features road vehicles.

Brian Cowen of Sound Post Instruments is hoping that the museum or another local institution will preserve the model and put it on public display.

A Surrey Advertiser reader cast more light on to the mystery: I can confirm that the model dates from the mids. I can well remember the model maker building it at County Hall.

The mid-to late s was a time of considerable development pressure on Guildford. The model was built to assist in assessing the three-dimensional impacts of various proposals [Friary Centre, new bridge over the river at Friary Street, Tunsgate Square, Phoenix Court]. In practice I think the model was little used. I suspect the model was lost following the reorganisation of local government in Surrey Advertiser 16th October WEY FLICK A Surrey actor and film producer chose Guildford and nearby Pirbright as locations for a new film exploring how a father could find himself resorting to the most extreme situation of taking the life of his own child.

Apparently the musician was playing "louder than the sound of drinkers conversations". Not exactly a Motorhead gig, then, but apparently still enough for a ban. It's a novel approach, but not likely to attract either musicians or audiences. The fact is that if you choose to live in a town centre you will hear noise at just about any time of the day and night. If you really can't cope with nice songs played by one man and his acoustic guitar for two hours in the middle of the evening once a week, maybe you should turn up the telly, or buy some earplugs.

On second thoughts, let's make Guildford a music free, car free, sneeze free zone after 7pm. Each cell is biometrically monitored to alert police within 45 seconds if a detainee stops breathing, has more natural light, and recessed sinks built into the walls apparently designed to prevent flooding. Offenders are also monitored by 65 CCTV cameras ensuring that there is literally nowhere to hide, and they have a choice of 24 cells there were only 13 in the original unit including one designed to cater for disabled visitors and dry cells which have no toilet or sink to allow trouble-free collecting of forensic evidence.

The custody suite also has new interview rooms, command centre and digital fingerprint scanning technology. Surrey Advertiser 4th December Or at least its owners did.

Uptown Girl was the brainchild of husband and wife team, the Zacharowitz's from South Africa, who having allegedly taken early occupancy and who were due to sign the lease following day, disappeared leaving suppliers and the owner of the shop in the lurch. It is thought that the Zacharowitz's had returned to South Africa. The results of the test, which examined logic and sequences to language skills, intriguingly were not announced at the time - perhaps because the organisers thought the rest of us might suffer from inadequacy.

Suffice it to say that a number of entrants who were interviewed by the Surrey Advertiser afterwards said that the experience was "not too taxing"; "good fun"; and "very challenging". Fittingly the test administrator said afterwards: He covered 36 miles 58km the previous record was 26 miles 42km in 14 hours and in doing so stopped off at every Premier league football ground in London.

Magness from Bellfields has turned his skill into a money earner as he now performs hundreds of halftime shows at football grounds up and down the country. From here lighting for the county's 89, street lamps will be increased where and when it is most needed and reduced when it is not according to the times of the year. The embroidery, which is being stitched in sections, features historic landmarks including the cathedral plus significant events such as Guilfest and notable residents.

WEY AVATAR A Guildford space scientist, who had been working on ways to control satellites at the university's space centre, has transferred the technology he was developing to robotics and has now adapted this to computer graphics.

Alexandre Pechev's work has rewarded him March with an entrepreneur award from experts at the Royal Academy of Engineering, and video game developers are showing a keen interest in adopting his technology.

This level of activity meant that the town exceeded the national average of If successful it will be the only venue in the borough legally entitled to stage fighting events. The Corona disappears and, at least as regards coffee, send in the clones.

Guildford's only field sports shop is sold, becomes a sports clothing shop - which fails; and is now a computer games store.

Guildford's only independent hardware shop self-immolates and becomes…a clothing shop. Guildford only second-hand bookshop is sold, becomes naturally a failed clothing shop and, rather than an independent cinema, will become again a clothing shop. But, at least we might expect an end to the pretentiousness that lead to applications for Guildford to become a city.

No self-respecting city would neglect local business or cultural initiatives to this extent. Surrey Advertiser 5th November Guildford's street furniture has been targeted repeatedly which has included the loss of metal road signs. The council announced February that it is to replace all street signage with signs manufactured from plastic and fibreglass.

Guildford is a market town and the county town of Surrey, and is located in a gap in the North Downs where the River Wey breaks through the hills. The first railway reached the town in , and in the decade after this when the railway finally reached Portsmouth, the thriving London-Guildford-Portsmouth coach trade floundered, and along with it the majority of the coaching inns that relied on the coaches passengers for their trade.

There is evidence that Guildford was the site of ancient settlements including Saxon. The site of a Romano-British temple has been identified at Wanborough on the outskirts of the town.

The first written record of the town is in the will of King Alfred when he gave Gyldeford to his nephew Etheldred. When King Canute died, there was a period of unrest in England with confusion over the succession. Alfred Atheling brother-in-law of Edward the Confessor and son of Ethelred the Unready sailed to England from Normandy with an army in an attempt to take the throne. He was captured at Guildford after being betrayed by Earl Godwin and his eyes put out.

His supporters were massacred and their remains were buried in the Saxon cemetery on the outskirts of Guildford at Guildown. Guildford had become one of the most important towns in Surrey by the time of the Norman invasion in William the Conqueror passed through Surrey on his way to London from Hastings.

At the time of Edward the Confessor — the town was still in the ownership of the Crown, and was to remain so until the time of James I when it was granted to the Earls of Aunandale, and eventually ended up in the hands of the Onslows of Clandon.

The town was sufficiently important in Anglo-Saxon times to have had its own mint. A royal castle was built in the town in the time of William the Conqueror. The ruins of Guildford Castle that remain today are confined to the central square keep and a few outer walls. The Norman keep GR: SU was the only one to be built in the county, and is of three stories towering 70 feet 21 metres above the town.

The walls at the foundations are 10 feet 3 metres thick and are cased with chalk, flint, sandstone and ragstone and have herringbone and fern leaf decorations. The structure, which was probably built not long after William the Conqueror seized power in , follows the classic Norman design of a motte on which the central tower was erected with the chalk excavated for the mound leaving a deep defensive ditch, and a bailey which provided a secure courtyard below.

Much of the original bailey ditch was filled in when the bailey was further extended in around to where Quarry Street now is. The original buildings in the bailey would have been of timber but were upgraded to stone structures in the 12th century. The fortification was built in stages. First a 'shell-keep' of chalk was built around the top of the motte.

In the s and s the 'great tower' was built in two phases with the height of the first phase battlements marked out in the plaster, this probably being the king's private apartments and which would have been reached by an outside staircase.

Not long later a second floor was added. Henry III , who favoured Guildford castle and was to often take up residence here over the Christmas festive season, spent a great deal of money on upgrading the buildings and provided for lavish decorations. As the only royal castle in Surrey it became an important administrative centre and served as the headquarters of the sheriff , who acted as the king's deputy in the county.

Trials were held here for serious crimes and by the time the king had new apartments constructed in the bailey the keep served as the gaol for both the counties of Surrey and Sussex, with early reference dating back to when a record of 4s was made for repairs for that purpose.

It appears that the gaol here was still operational in according to deed records for the maintenance of prisoners made at that time, although not for county use. A new gaol was built in Quarry Street in which was in use until at which time it was resited to South Hill. This was the last gaol in Guildford and closed in after which time prisoners were sent to the House of Correction in Wandsworth in London. The ruins near the Castle Hill entrance are thought possibly to be the site of the King's Great Chamber which would have served as his private quarters.

Official records suggest that the chamber was panelled with wood, the ceilings were decorated with moons and stars, and the windows were glazed - a real luxury in the 13th century. Both the king and queen had their own private chapels near the Great Chamber. The Great Hall would have been the focus of royal life at the castle, and close by there was a complex of buildings that accommodated an entourage of officials, courtiers and servants who attended to the king and queen's every need.

The royal children would have been housed here too. It is thought that the Great Hall was sited where the Victorian brick houses stand today. It was constructed by the king's master mason John of Gloucester, and you can see the grooves on either side of the gateway in which the portcullis 1 slid into position to seal off the entrance.

The structure itself was deemed as being sufficiently sound but the renovation was needed to repair and protect the surface which has been cracking and crumbling due to water and frost damage to the chalk.

It shows the fully completed keep with its motte and bailey defences rising high above the town. There is activity within the castle walls and two mounted figures accompanied by a dog approach the gate either side of two peasants carrying a deer slung over a pole. The High Sheriff argues. The conflict lasted for 18 months. Queen Eleanor was very cultured and matched the refinements introduced by the king at Guildford with a colonnaded garden and tiled pavements.

Maintenance records have survived which chart daily life at the castle, which at its zenith was regarded as one of the most luxurious royal residences in England. Visits by Edward III were recorded in , and After Henry III died in the castle had a chequered history in terms of its preservation. The brick window frames and fireplaces in the keep were added in the s when the castle was owned by the Daborne family.

However by the 17th century it had fallen into disrepair and was eventually bought in from James I by one Francis Carter who renovated the keep. The family eventually gave up the keep as a home and built a house by the Castle Arch, now the museum.

By the house which was built into the northern gate tower wall had been constructed in a hall-and-crosswings plan typical to the area. It was around this time that the roof of the great tower was removed, probably for use as building material. It is clad in brick with tile-hangings on the upper storeys.

The mueum took over the building in By the castle had deteroriated quite significantly and the ruins were bought by Guildford Borough Council from Lord Grantley in order to protect them. In a new roof and floors were put into the tower.

The grounds of the castle were opened to the public in on the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria's coronation by the Borough Surveyor Henry Peak following extensive restoration and today are well maintained offering a quiet retreat from the hubbub of the High Street a hundred yards away. Peak had specifically intended the grounds to be 'public pleasure gardens' and the layout clearly reflects that. A commemorative plaque to Peak was erected in the castle grounds in He was to become king as Edward I and was also known as Edward Longshanks in deference to his 6ft 2in stature.

The gardens were once part of the grounds of the house of Castle Cliffe further up the hill and were gifted to the borough by Harry Stevens in The Stevens family around that time also owned the Wey Navigation on which they operated their extensive haulage and barge building business which centred on Dapdune Wharf, and they had also gifted the navigation to the National Trust in In the Guildford Society re-opened Peaks Pond which had been filled in and which has been restored to its 19th century glory using the original design including the fountain and edging.

The pond is maintained by Guildford Borough Council and has solar powered fountains which constantly recycle the water they use. The area of the grounds that today contains the bandstand and bowling green had been laid out as formal gardens by the early 17th century.

This part probably formed the outer bailey of the medieval castle. The Guildford House Gallery has in their collection a painting of the green made by Thomas Remington in the early 19th century. A Victorian bandstand also graces the gardens under the setting of a great oak tree. Regularly the venue for all manner of public performances from brass bands and orchestras to rock bands and theatre groups.

The Pranksters Theatre Company which was founded in has for over 25 years put on performances here and The Herald Players have been performing open air Shakespeare here since the s. Standing proud at the northern end of the green is the Guildford War Memorial. An impressive arch designed by local architect F J Hodgson set in a Garden of Remembrance the memorial has four large panels on the outer pillars containing the names of those local people who gave their lives in the war.

A central pillar added to the memorial, which was originally dedicated in to the First World War, carries four smaller panels with names from the war added in A full list of all those commemorated can be found HERE. An original gas street lamp has been preserved here. It was originally erected by the Guildford Gas Light and Coke Company in for the trustees of the turnpike road at the junction of London and Epsom Roads and is highly unusual being constructed of stone with a 10ft 3m fluted Doric column standing on a square pedestal and plinth.

The stunning life-sized statue of Alice Through the Looking Glass was created by Jean Argent under commission from the Municipal General Insurance company and was erected in the gardens in Although Carroll lived in Oxford, as head of the Dodgson family 3 being the oldest brother to six unmarried sisters after the death of their father he acquired the lease for the house to provide a home for them.

He did visit frequently during university vacations and many of his later works were inspired by his stays. Alice in Wonderland had been published before he came to Guildford although in he completed his second Alice book Through the Looking Glass whilst staying at Guildford.

It is also believed that the idea of The Hunting of the Snark came to him whilst taking one of his many long walks in the area. The statue stands in the garden that once belonged to Castle Gate which is immediately beyond the railings.

Its location is also quite apt in that the author was a frequent visitor to a young girl Miss Edith Haydon who lived at Castle Gate. He took a photo of her standing against the sloping garden wall here. On the wall is a plaque commemorating the opening of the Castle grounds extension in It was a joy to sit on a seat in the sun by the bowling green - it is a credit to the people who care for it, a true oasis.

The bandstand looked lovely from where I sat and I shall return to see the tulips in bloom. The castle keep is open to visitors for a small entrance fee from March until September, although opening times vary according to the season. The gardens are free to access and are open all year round from dawn to dusk. Running beneath the castle and into the hill across the southern boundary are extensive chalk tunnels and galleries. These caverns consist of a large cave measuring 45ft by 20ft 14m by 6m and reaching to 9ft 2.

One of the tunnels was dug ft 32m beneath what is now the road through Quarry Hill. These man-made workings, which consist of eight linked chambers, are ancient quarries which provided the building materials for the castle and other early buildings locally, and Quarry Street running alongside was named after these.

The quarries were particularly renowned for the durable properties of chalk clunk. Archaelogists believe that a perpendicular shaft sunk into the workings from above was a cesspit probably used for the gaol above. Some historians believe that in the women and children of the town hid in the tunnels to avoid detection by an invading Irish army.

The caverns, which are sealed and not accessible to the public, have been opened in modern times to quarry chalk for repairs to the castle. Guildford historian Stan Newman, who believes that the caverns were the site of a brutal massacre of Norman soldiers 1, years ago, is campaigning April to have the underground caves opened up to the public.

In pre-war years, after a clean-up organised by Lord Grantley in , the caverns were accessible by the public which included lantern-lit tours. One tour in attracted 2, visitors. However Guildford Borough Council, who commissioned a survey in February by structural consultants, believe the caves to be too unsound and will require considerable work to make them safe for public access.

The site of another quarry GR: SU half a mile away in Chantry View Road off A Shalford Road is the subject of continuing local debate after the application by a property developer to build 14 houses on the site was resurrected March Latchmere Properties original application for 31 apartments was rejected after strong resistance for local residents and the lodging of 85 objections with the council. Guildford has had the status of a Borough since the 11th century, and became the County Town in having been granted its Royal Charter by Henry III the year before.

From the time of Edward I until the town had two members of parliament representing its interests when a new Act reduced this to one. The Act provided for a mayor, 4 aldermen and 12 councilors. The town you see today is considerably different from that even of the 18th century. The town in a map The Ichnography compares significantly in size with that of a one, showing little growth between the two.

Other streets were populated but not to the degree they are today. Plots along streets were divided up into gardens, one of which as the garden of the Red Lion provided produce for the kitchens, and it is said that Samuel Pepys particularly enjoyed the asaparagus grown there when he stayed in the town. The population of Guildford in was 2, and by it was only 2, It grew slowly until the coming of the railway. The town has seen incredible population growth over modern times. By it was over 43,, the rate of growth far exceeding the national average for the same period.

The economic profile of the town is well documented. For Guildford this sector provides services in shops, hotels, catering, financial, local government and health care. The census of had the majority of workers in the service sector classified as domestic servants, who at the time did not work just for the rich but also in most middle class houses and even for the best paid skilled manual workers.

Over this year period Guildford has consistently had a far higher proportion of workers in the service sector than the national average. Guildford has been blessed by relative wealth through much of its history, and ever since national censuses began has had unemployment rates significantly lower than those recorded nationally. One measure of relative wealth used by statisticians has been the facilities available to home dwellers.

Other measures included the percentage of households with more than one person per room, which from the first available records on this measure in to the census Guildford was running at a considerably lower percentage than the national average. SU , founded in when the Surrey Archaeological Society was formed, resides in an old house in Quarry Street built into the old castle walls adjacent to the castle gate.

The museum boasts the largest collection of archaeology, local history and needlework in Surrey, including original collections dating back to Hundreds of items over the years have been donated by people which has helped the total collection reach an estimated 78, items A large proportion of the collection is made up of objects found in the area, manufactured here for example an original Friary brewery wooden cask or were owned by someone with a strong link to the town a good example being toys belonging to the Rev Charles Dodgson's family aka Lewis Carroll.

The museum collection includes the human remains of 85 individuals ranging in date from the Neolithic 10, to 4, years ago to as recently the medieval period up to years ago. Several exist as almost complete skeletons although the majority are only partial remains such as a skull or long bone from an arm or leg.

The collection includes the remains of 47 people excavated from an Anglo Saxon cemetery in Ashtead near Leatherhead between and The museum, along with others throughout the country, has been formally contacted August by a Pagan group Honouring the Ancient Dead requesting that they are involved in decisions as to how such human remains are dealt with in storage, display and reburial.

SU in the High Street was built in Tudor times, and was converted in to include the highly distinctive decorative clock made by John Aylwards that considerably overhangs the granite sets of the cobbled street below. The council chamber above the hall has at its end an unusual chimney piece which was originally sited at Stoughton House. A set of standard measures presented to the town by Elizabeth I are kept in the Guildhall, and are one of only a few complete sets that have survived.

Vandals damaged the Guildhall clock September when they climbed temporary scaffolding erected to the outside of the building for maintenance work and wound the clock forward by pulling on the hands. A specialist was employed to repair the internal mechanism.

Neighbourhood Inspector Tim Shaw, said: Opposite the Guildhall is the Tunsgate GR: SU The market that had traded at the bottom of the High Street was relocated here in and a few market traders still use the grand Tuscan style portico today.

As the official Corn Exchange , where merchants secured trade for grain with the many millers along the Wey Valley, the building was also often turned over to serve as the Assize Court with many a comment made as to the dust and musky smell of the hastily cleared out interior. Once the Assizes were lost to Kingston-upon-Thames and the Corn Exchange became less important with the decline in the milling industry, the building was part demolished to open up access to the street behind.

The portico did originally have four pillars evenly spaced but the two central ones were moved in to allow motor vehicles to pass through. The Guildford Institute , on the corner of Ward Street and North Street, was originally founded as the Guildford Mechanics Institute in during a nationwide drive to meet the demands of the Industrial Revolution and the powerful social changes being triggered at the time.

By the end of the century the Institute was a formative and popular focus for social and cultural life in the town. The venture very quickly foundered and the building was sold to the Guildford Working Men's Institute in , which merged the following year with the Mechanics Institute to form the Guildford Institute.

The building had facilities for lectures and classes and provided a well-stocked library and museum. After the Second World War new government bodies were formed which were to provide many of the educational functions the Mechanics Institute had been formed to provide, and so the organisation quickly fell into decline.

Members also have access to a borrowers library of newly-published books including fiction and non-fiction, including biographies and autobiographies many dating back to when the library took up its present location.

The library has over 13, catalogued volumes of which almost 2, predate the First World War. The Beano Restaurant in the Assembly Room and Ladies Room serves vegetarian lunches every weekday and the first Saturday of the month during school term time. A brass plaque by the door commemorates the fact that Guildford Chess Club has played matches at the Institute for over a century, and continues to do so.

Surrey University announced December that it will be withdrawing from a long standing association with the Institute, originating in , which had provided much needed funding to keep the organisation afloat.

Other organisations were also able to hire facilities in the building. The arrangement came to an end in August The Institute continues to generate an income by hiring out facilities including meeting rooms and providing educational courses, although there is some doubt as to how it will now face a certain future. A new management committee formed to manage the split with the university also introduced new initiatives with a new adult education programme and strengthened the regular programme of current affairs and arts lectures.

The paid positions of caretaker and receptionists were also replaced by volunteers to save money, and the library continues also to be staffed by volunteers. The Institute was used by BBC3 to film part of an episode of it's Naked series showing five female estate agents undergoing a radical confidence building programme.

The scene filmed at the Institute involved the group individually having to undertake a persoanlpresentation to members of the Guildford Debating Society followed by a questions and answers session. The episode was broadcast in February The series, presented by psychologist Emma Kenny, seeks to test how far a group of people will go to overhaul their self-image. Psychologist Emma Kenny and image consultant Jonathan Phang launch a radical self-confidence building course, as a group of five professionals undertake a series of challenges designed to help them get rid of inner demons and help their self-esteem at work and at home.

It culminates in a dramatic naked stunt in which we find out who has gained the confidence to literally bare all.
