A Wet Weekend in Surrey

Leith Hill Rhodos

So, another Bank Holiday and the weather is disappointing, such a shame for all those visiting the Surrey Show in Guildford today.  Only one thing to do, the Old Joiner (aka my husband) and I donned wellies and headed up to walk through the Rhododendron Wood on Leith Hill.  Yes, sunshine does make our Surrey Hills come to life but the weather certainly did not put off those on their mountain and road bikes ever keen to enjoy our countryside.  As for the rhododendrons, they must be one of Surrey’s best kept secrets!  The National Trust have done a stunning job clearing scrub and opening paths.  If you are taking a  bed and breakfast break in or around the Dorking area, do head “up the hill” – you won’t be disappointed.  Jane
