Heading through Dorking Wood . . .


with lots of new tree trunks


Part of the route follows a section of the North Downs Way




The recent storms have take their toll


Entering the Denbies Estate the impressive gates . . .


lead to a partly hidden house

Vines are planted on the south facing slopes . . .
