Wadham College

I find myself here in Oxford on this sunny late Sunday afternoon at the end of May.

Botley Hill

image


The track down the North Down from Botley Hill through the Titsey Estate to Oxted is good and fast, even in damp conditions. The biggest problem riding here are the sticks left by walkers and their dogs strewn on the path.

Smog is all around

image


Looking down over London from the North Down one can see that it too is covered in the nasty brown haze. We are breathing this poison.

Surrey & Sussex Dirty Air

image


This is my typical view from the Woldingham viewpoint of Oxted and the Weald of Kent. Besides for the morning mists, the temperature inversion has trapped a dirty layer of polluted air over East Sussex. From my experience someone in East Sussex, looking back at the North Downs, will see the same smog up here.

And yet we carry on as usual, addicted to our polluted lifestyle. Outraged at our corrupt leaders for sticking their fingers in the till. Blaming regional powers based in Brussels. Why don’t we do something?

Woldingham bridlepath

image


I just cycled down this hill, which is a lot more impressive than it looks from here and through this lens. More so because I had to cycle back up it in order to get back down the other side. At the top there are some good views down over London.

The Oxted Dairy

image

In an earlier age this institution was known as the Oxted Dairy. From 1984 onwards it was home to the Good Food Shop. We witnessed its rebirth, followed shortly thereafter by closure. Then it threatened to open as a hen-night/pottery class/kiddie art studio (what a combo). Well that idea never came to fruition and the site is again advertising for tenants.

People in Surrey, West Sussex and South West London looking for an ethical source of food, with some local suppliers, should now check out Greener Greens.
