GUILDFORD TOWN HALL AND THE WHITE MARKET HOUSE OF GODALMING

GUILDFORD TOWN HALL AND THE WHITE MARKET HOUSE OF GODALMING

Guildford High Street (bottom) goes steeply up the hill and still contains buildings of other centuries. Among these the Town Hall is particularly noticeable because of its clock, which hangs far out over the roadway on the end of a long bracket. Under the bracket we see here the balcony of the Council Chamber. The Town Hall was put up in 1683, and contains paintings of Charles II and James II by Lely. The next halt on our journey to Portsmouth is Godalming, thirty-four and a half miles from London. The Market House dates from about 1814.
