In 1868 Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) bought The Chestnuts, a home for his six unmarried sisters in Guildford just next to the castle ruins. He was constantly in Guildford visiting and wrote the second Alice book, Through the Looking Glass, on one of these stays in 1871.

He lived the last year of his life in Guildford and died on 14 January 1898. He is now buried in the cemetery on The Mount just inside the gates; his grave can be noted by a cross which was erected by his brothers and sisters.

    Fabulous, the clarity is amazing!

  • Thanks Adrian. My little point and shoot took this and it usually does the job. Only thing is it’s only 4 megapixels.

    You have captured the spirit of Guildford so wonderfully well Elaine! This is a wonderful photograph that brings back many memories :-)

  • Thank you Constance and thanks for the fave. Memories for me too as I used to live near Guildford and it’s still one of my most favourite places for its memories and it’s historic value. I’m a sucker for a cobbled street too.

    There used to be a wonderful coffee bean shop just out of shot up the hill more. The smell of freshly ground coffee used to fill the air as you walked past. Spent a lot of time in my twenty’s in Guildford . Super shot Elaine brought back memories.

  • I spent a lot of time here too Mark in my teens and twenties. One of my favourite places. My brother has a collectors record shop here. I don’t remember the coffee bean shop though. Thanks for commenting.
