I somehow took the wrong road out of London , and as it was a nice day I just kept going through Brixton, then round Croydon, knowing the road must lead to the M25. But even then I lost the way, and by chance came to a beauty spot called Riddlesdown, where the road came to an end.
Here sheep were grazing in a quiet clearing and I sat to watch them for a while.
This far out on the Surrey Downs the dog bins are owned by ‘The Corporation of London’. I didn’t realise London stretched so far.
