Too often Surrey is associated with boring commuter towns, traffic and suburban sprawl. But there are other parts of the county which are beautiful. Some of the lanes through the North Downs are more like Devon roads with their overhanging branches and deep cuttings. One long and winding lane led onto the road to Ockley where we found the Inn on the Green and a nice lunch – together with views over the green to some interesting cottages. Most properties in the Hills would probably need a banker’s or a footballer’s income but there’s no charge for visitors – yet.
