My, Frimley, how you’ve changed!

Camberley postcards assorted 5

 

This is Frimley High Street as I remember it when we first arrived in the area!   By my calculations, the original road was much narrower and the building line on the right hand side was up to the central reservation.  Can anyone confirm this?  I think the demolition of the original village houses must have happened in the 1960s?

  1. You are right, it was much narrower – there is a francis frith image showing that. The left hand side of the high street stayed where it was, and the right hand side was changed. Maybury house, which is just in shot in the image above was untouched, and the rest of it was set up as new shops and flats above. Not sure on the year, it was after 1955.
