As viewed from a boat on the River Thames on Sunday. 

I have previously taken a photo from the same perspective.  See here.

Descending Chalkpit Lane

This is fast and direct way back down from Woldingham to Oxted.  It’s not my favourite route, but it is the quickest way back to Oxted, so it is suitable when the sun has set and the evening is closing in, or if it is starting to get wet and/or cold.

Does Surrey County Council have a target culture?

image
I can think of no reason why they would create a two metre cycle lane so soon after the previous (five metre cycle lane ends). Someone suggested to me that it would be to add two metres to the statistic that indicates the total distance covered by cycle lanes in Surrey). I would be interested to know how much it cost, and to add that to the statistic that indicates the total money wasted by Surrey County Council.

Greenhill Shaw to Slines Oak Road

A short and sweet descent of the North Downs into Halliloo Valley, Woldingham. The route goes from Greenhill Shaw to Slines Oak Road. I filmed this yesterday afternoon. According to the GPS data my maximum speed during the video was 44.3 kph (27.5 mph).  Later in the afternoon I clocked 71 kph (44 mph) but that was on a road.

Bluebells in Great Church Wood

image

The annual display of bluebells is still looking good around here. While taking the photo in this peaceful and beautiful spot, I could hear the tapping of a woodpecker nearby. You can see someone else’s photos (from past seasons in these woods) here.

Wild Garlic

image

It’s that time of year again, and here’s some Allium ursinum that I found growing in the woods at Tandridge. Unlike normal garlic, you eat the leaves of this plant, see here.
