Castle Mill Dorking



                  Castle Mill Dorking Picture Postcard


The above Postcard i recently acquired from a Boot Sale in Somerset. Recognising the site immediately as i live just two mile from Dorking. I know the picture was taken prior to 1913 as the Postcard is written and posted in 1913 and i have identified the three people in the Picture leaning on the gate overlooking the pond and the little boy are dressed in Edwardian attire. So it could be the picture was taken around 1910.

Obviously the person who write the card was on some kind of break and as the English do and have always done a mention of the weather doesn't  go amiss.


Written Postcard evidence of the date of the Picture which is earlier than 1913
