Happy Childhood Times - a Memory of Guildford.

In the late fifties and early sixties myself and my family lived just outside Guildford (where I was born in 1951) and my mother used to take me after school on shopping trips to Guildford High Street and into Harveys as it was then, as she knew the fashion buyer there. As a treat we would go up to the wonderful roof garden and whilst mum had tea I played, running backwards and forwards over the stepping stones shown in this picture. There were fish swimming in the water in those days and I thought the place was magical. It was a simple pleasure but one I will always remember and I am glad to learn it has been restored so I can again visit it one day.
