Newlands Corner

I met Marion in February at an ecumenical Lenten Bible study held in our church. The next evening I recognized her across the room in the soprano section of St Dunstan's Chorus during rehearsal. Marion offered to show me some of her favourite local sights, and I readily accepted, so last Wednesday was our big day out.


Our first stop was Newlands Corner. It's part of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and was nationally protected as such back in 1958. With many different marked footpaths, it becomes a very popular area for walkers and picnickers in warmer weather.

In that first picture, the thing that pops into my mind is seeing Julie Andrews running up the hill singing "the hills are alive, with the sound of music . . ."

Very nice picture I thought.
