Guildford in Surrey has been a town since the early 10th century, and before that was a long standing Saxon village beside the guilden (golden) ford. The period between 1930 and 1961 saw the creation of a Cathedral on Stag Hill, visits from royalty and ministers, carnival processions and flooding, captured on film.
