TQ1652 : Norbury Park: the southernmost corner, after snow

taken 7 years ago, near to Westhumble, Surrey, Great Britain

Norbury Park: the southernmost corner, after snow
Norbury Park: the southernmost corner, after snow
Taken on the afternoon of February 7th, following snowfall overnight on the 4th-5th. Meanwhile a good deal of snow had melted, but what was left on the ground had re-frozen, and was hard and crunchy (but easy to walk on).

The view here is SE, across the Mole Gap, with Box Hill dominating the skyline. Norbury Park was acquired by Surrey County Council in the 1930's, with the aim of protecting it from development. It is currently managed by Surrey Wildlife Trust Countryside Services, with the grassland areas being grazed by sheep. Part of the site is an SSSI.

The two fine trees on the slope are ashes. For a closer view, see TQ1652 : Ash trees in Norbury Park, Westhumble, after snow
