TQ1652 : Platelayer's hut, north of Box Hill & Westhumble station

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

Platelayer's hut, north of Box Hill & Westhumble station
Platelayer's hut, north of Box Hill & Westhumble station
At least, that's what we'd have called it back in the days of Hornby Dublo.

By the time I took this shot, the sun had sunk below the ridge behind me, so that the foreground is in shade while the snow-dappled hills are still catching weak sunlight. The Box Hill scarp is out of shot to the right, as seen in: TQ1652 : Norbury Park: the southernmost corner, after snow

This platelayer's hut stands close to the Dorking-Leatherhead line, which links to both Victoria and Waterloo. A few years ago, before the property bubble burst, a lock-up garage in SW London was advertised at an asking price in excess of 110,000. You can't help wondering . . .
