More about this scene

Caption for Westcott, The Village 1922: Stolid Victorian shops and houses stood here alongside the main A25 road linking Guildford and Dorking. The dovecote on the small triangular green, with its unusual weathervane carrying the letter 'T' signifying north, was erected as a First World War memorial. On the extreme left is the post office, with The Bricklayer's Arms across the way. Beyond is E M Parton's fish shop, and two doors further on, the Westcott Communal Kitchen.

Memories of Westcott

I remember walking down from Thorndale cottages on the old flint road taking a jug to be filled with ale for my grandfather Joseph Frank Brown and grandma May Brown and Miss Wheeler who lived next door no 3, happy memories

Stephen, I knew your father well from his days at Tooting and when he moved to The Prince of Wales in the 60's. I used to play keyboard with Colin Neilson on drums every month. Terribly loud stuff but good fun! Great guy, your father. Best regards Alan Cooper

I was landlord of the Crown from 1971 to 1973.  I was only 19 and apparently the youngest landlord in England at the time.  My father, Bernard Edmund had been landord at the Prince of Wales  across the road, for many years.   We had some wonderful times at The Crown.
