TQ1648 : South Terrace, Dorking

taken 4 years ago, near to North Holmwood, Surrey, Great Britain

South Terrace, Dorking
South Terrace, Dorking
There seems to be something a bit bohemian about this hilly corner of Dorking, and I was reminded of Hampstead as it was back in my student days. The 'chateau' is No 51, and has been divided into flats.

There are dozens of big horse-chestnut trees here, and - on this afternoon in early October - conkers were hitting the ground at a rate of three or four per minute. The conker trees appeared to be in good health, but - given the blighted state of chestnut trees in the London suburbs - I fear for their longer term future.
