Warning: strtotime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /Library/WebServer/Documents/wp-includes/comment.php on line 1608

A walk through history

We took advantage of the sunshine and the frozen ground (it was still minus 7C at 8am) to walk along the River Mole near Betchworth. The fields and trees were covered in frost and we were even lucky enough to see three deer bounding across the fields.

There is a line of abandoned pillboxes in the area that had us mystified until we discovered the Defence of Britain Project. It turns out that they were built to defend against a Nazi invasion during the Second World War. The pillbox above is even listed in their database. Further proof that you’re never very far away from history in England.
