I had a little more time on Monday, for a longer ride. I extended my usual route to include Newdigate. I wanted to find a cafe for coffee and cake. I was unsuccessful, so I initially stopped to eat an energy bar in the park at Brockham, with just this feathered companion.


Fortunately Leigh has The Plough Inn public house. The sign said not to enter, a bell was provided to summon assistance. They served very tasty chips and a coffee whilst I sat in the sun.

Almost without exception, if there is a bridge it's only one car width wide in this area.

Here is a picture from the one in Betchworth.

On Wednesday as I cycled under a tree I went through a wall of flies, luckily I had my mouth closed. You can just see them as they are illuminated by my the built in light on my camera.

Friday I chilled out on the green in Brockham, I usually stop, eat and head home. This time it was good to just watch the world go for a while.
