A trip to Box Hill in the rain
25th May 2003
As it was a lovely Sunday afternoon we decided to go to Box Hill.
Just as we pulled into the car park - it started to pour with rain.
We had our lunch in the car and eventually the sun came out.

Box Hill is one of the best-known summits of the North Downs and at 193m (634 feet) it is prominent in the landscape.
The 120m high (394 feet) sheer chalk escarpment (called The Whites) has been cut away by the River Mole and is the finest natural river cliff in the county, if not in southern Britain. The cliff is so steep that the only trees that can get a foothold are box and yew.
