Guildford High Street

Renumbering of Guildford High Street

Guildford High Street was renumbered with effect from 1st January 1961. 

Prior to this, numbers had started at the junction of The High Street and Chertsey Street and increased running down the hill on the north side (the right standing at the top and looking down the hill) to Park Street.  Then the numbering continued up the other (south) side of the High Street to the junction with Epsom Road and London Road. The numbers then continued down the north side (again) back to the junction with Chertsey Street.  Over the years, new numbers had been inserted as buildings were split into more properties or new construction took place and some numbers were lost through demolition (e.g. building of Millbrook).

After the renumbering, the numbers started from where Millbrook now cut across the old High Street, with odd numbers running up the hill on the north side and even numbers running up the hill on the south side.
