I cycled out of Edenbridge and headed towards the North Downs. This picture was taken looking at Pains Hill. I then took a picture of the geese on the farm and it wasn't until I loaded the picture on the computer that I noticed that there were two walkers looking at me through binocculars!! This year I cycled up Pains hill in two goes! So I was pleased with myself.
Below is a view of Godstone village green that I took last year, this year there was football being played so this made a better photo.
After leaving Godstone I passed Godstone farm and headed up Tilburtstow Hill. (which I did in two goes!!!!) This is along aRoman Road which eventually goes to Bignor Roman Villa in the foot of the South Downs. Then I cycled along the lovely lanes to Crowhurst. This sign is for the village and they are common in Surrey.
I then cycled through Lingfield where I saw this collection of older houses on the High Street. Some buildings are 16th Century. Shame people are allowed to park their cars here though as there were an awful lot of them.
I then cycled along a lovely lane to Cowden. On the way I got a puncture. It was a teeny weeny piece of stone. So I pulled to the side of the road and managed to fix it. I was just pumping up the tyre when a man and woman stopped and helped me. Luckily he had a track pump in his car so he kindly pumped up my tyre for me. It wasn't as if I couldn't have done it but it was nice to not feel so alone knowing that there are kind people out there who are willing to help. Ta mate.
