Cyclamen at edge of churchyard
Mickleham churchyard
Cyclamen again
12th century building, much re-built. Tower dates from about 1140
I think the insides of churches were once brightly painted too (in mediaeval times).
Mickleham was the refuge of several emigres during the French Revolution. One of them married Fanny Burney.

View of Dorking from Box Hill
Flanks of Box Hill in the foreground, Denbies vineyard ahead and above it the beginnings of Ranmore Common. Not sure what the furthest hill is.
Loves growing near water, and it's good fun making the flowers pop
The white cliffs of Box Hill
Shades of green
Now redeveloped into 2 homes set in 4 acres
Norbury Park info
...but I found out that Dr Marie Stopes only ever spent about 2 weeks there. Don't know if that is true or not.
Looking imposing high on its hilltop
View from Norbury Park.The green slope in the distance is Juniper Hill which is worth getting to for beautiful views. It's part of the Box Hill area.
Privately owned. Not to be confused with the Juniper Hall Field Studies Centre across the road from it.

It wasn't the batteries running out on previous trips. It was my old camera conking out. New camera had wrong date and time on it when I did this trip! So photos are slightly out of synch.

Lovely walk with some very steep bits and a long hard gradual uphill slog along Juniper Bottom. 10.8 miles altogether. Phew!
