Spring Wildflowers in the Surrey Hills
Place: Twickenham riverside by Eel Pie Bridge
Description: We cycle through Kingston and Tolworth before cutting across Horton Country Park and Ashstead Common to Leatherhead and the Mole Gap. Past Box Hill Station, a steep climb takes us to Norbury Park – run by Surrey Wildlife Trust and looking like an Alpine meadow. Lunch at Bocketts farm. 36 miles, tracks a bit rough in places.
Only six of us enjoyed this ride, one on a fixer (ouch). Temperature just right and clear views. The grasslands will be better later in the year though. Bocketts Farm good for filled baked potatoes and Mars Bar Cake.
