Walnut Tree Close is situated in central Guildford, sandwiched between the River Way and the Railway. It is in the parish of St Nicholas and in 1881 the population of the parish of St Nicholas was 438 (source Vision of Britain). I have estimated that there were 100 inhabitants in the road, but that is solely an estimate.
Many of the dwellings were either built in the 1870s by or for the Railway which came to Guildford in the 1850s or the dwellings were converted barns.
