The Greensand Way follows the southern ridges of the North Downs past Dorking. From that town, one would assume that the northern slopes (Box Hill) are the higher points. Yet, south-west is the second highest point in the south-east (I have already visited this controversy and it is definitely not a peak!): Leith Hill.
My group walked from Holmwood to Shalford yesterday along well-appointed footpaths through the fields and woods of the Surrey Hills. Beautiful rolling landscape with fading greens as the year turns. Like most Surrey walks, views across the weald towards Sussex are worthwhile without the encumbrance of spectacular. Apart from the tower on Leith Hill, I found no singular note to distinguish this excursion. With the rain, the endless mist and dripping rain in the woodland, the walk connected again to the seasonal cycle and brought home how summer has gone and boots again will squelch through mud and leafmould.
