22 September 2013: Dormansland, Dry Hill and East Grinstead

Two of us joined Don on an impromptu walk he led from Dormans station, starting off on the same path through Dormansland to the Greathed Manor estate as my walk of 22nd July 2012. We then headed through Dry Hill fort and down to the lovely valley on its south side, before skirting Old Surrey Hall and coming into East Grinstead through the atmospheric Ashplats Wood.

We abandoned the struggle to find a proper teashop in East Grinstead and went to the Café Nero instead, but subsequently came across Bluebells on the corner of London Road and Railway Approach, which could have done us a cream tea.
