An interesting walk to hidden areas of Newdigate and a visit to the Mill Cottage Garden. The guides from Newdigate History Society were very knowledgeable and local historian John Calcutt created such a fascinating talk that it took us much longer than planned to get to the wonderful refreshments that crowned the evening.
Enthousiastic Society members commented:
“Having lived at Ewood for 32 years, I found this outing fascinating and learnt so much about the area. To finish the evening at the Surrey Oak was the icing on the cake.”
“Very interesting – could have done with torches! Fascinating hidden area of Surrey. Good historical/industrial information!”
“Wonderful homemade sausage rolls and Pimms (courtesy of the Richards, SHS members) at Ewood Stables!”
