    Puttenham is a small village in Surrey which lies halfway between Guildford and Farnham, and is a good place to stop for a break if you are walking between the two towns. The pub on the main street, The Good Intent, serves meals, though we only stopped for a drink as we’d already eaten. The pub was very busy though we did find a spot in the beer garden out the back.

    A useful travel tip re Guildford ?

    Easy ... Go to Godalming ... it's way better !

    Please have a look at my homepage section for info and pictures of Godalming !

    There will probably be no further updates though, as I am sure that I will have upset someone in Guildford, and I go there regularly!
    I will have to adopt a fiendishly cunning disguise ...

    "Through the Looking Glass"

    by Bjorgvin Written Sep 18, 2003

    When walking the castle grounds you will come upon a small monument called “Though the Looking Glass”. In 1868 a certain C.L. Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll, rented a house on Castle Hill a stone throw away called The Chestnuts. It can be easily spotted by the prominent blue door. His first children’s book “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” had been published three years earlier (1865), and later he went on to write “Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There” (1871) and “The Wasp in the Wig” (1977) for children. His six unmarried sisters lived at The Chestnuts, and he himself spent many a vacation there. He died there in 1898 and is buried across the river.
