Climbing Leith Hill

Wonderful walk today from Holmwood to Forest Green, returning via Leith Hill and Coldharbour. Eleven miles, autumn colours and houses belonging to famous Surrey residents like Ralph Vaughn-Williams & Charles Darwin  -visiting his sister who married a Wedgewood- in every direction.  Full marks to the staff at The Parrot for good soup served so quickly even though the pub was brimming.


A great avenue of Limes leading to a pond, paths softened by leaf fall or densely muddy and views of the South Downs providing the backdrop for the Surrey and Sussex Weald.

Well worth tired legs and a good test for my new walking boots.
