Shyneford revisited pt2

Shyneford revisited pt2, originally uploaded by fred pipes.

It was Graham Clarke's surprise 60th birthday party over the weekend, first at l'auberge at the Onslow Arms, West Clandon on Saturday night, then a picnic at Rack's Close, Guildford, on the Sunday (with a few of us going to the King's Head for a pint after). Some photos here, on Flickr (tho it's an invite-only group). I had a very quick wander round Guildford and took some photos of familiar landmarks: the new building where the Art Deco Odeon once stood, the derelict Civic Hall, and some pubs that have changed their names! There should be a law against it! The Rats Castle on Sydenham Road is now blandly The Guildford Arms, and The Two Brewers (which was The Three Tuns a couple of weeks ago) is now called Mustard! Thankfully The Royal Oak, Robin Hood and King's Head are names that endure.
