I was mad about photography and would go all over Bisley with my camera. I would concentrate on the wildlife, esp. on the village pond where my brother and I would look for various types of pond life.
In those days we would often not see a single person, and cars were so rare that we would spot cars, as in "That is an Austin A40" or "That is a Sunbeam Talbot", now I suspect there is a constant flow of traffic through the village.
I came back to Bisley in 1980 and took ten photographs of the village store, etc and found that our old school tuck shop was still there..as I am always in Guildford on accountancy work, for that is what I went on to become. I intend to come back and photograph the very same views standing in the exact spot that I did 30 years ago, and compare the changes over the 30 years. When I have done this I shall make the 1980 photographs available on whichever web-site people in Bisley suggest that I use.
There shall of course be no charge for this, I just wish to show 30 years of change to a now modern village.
I do have memories of being hot as boys often are in the heat of summer and running around, and knocking on the door of a thatched house, and my brother and I being given a cool drink of lemonade in the garden...I should not suggest any boy to do that now of course!!
