RANMORE WORTHY OF A FAMILY DAY OUT FROM LONDON
The beauty and Splendour of Ranmore Common taken from my back yard on a bright June Summer morning. The tiny distant Spire in that of St Barnabas peaking out above the trees. This Historic and might i add rather beautiful church was built by Sir Gilbert Scott for the Cubitt family consecrated in 1859. Now the secret of this special place apart from the Historic value, the superb surroundings, peace and tranquillity and not forgetting the superb views as far as Leith Hill and Gatwick Airport, is that the Teas and cakes served in the summer at St Barnabas are very special indeed. Many walkers and cyclists stop by for some light refreshments on route. For me a local Westcott resident the climb up to the top or the cycle ride to the top on a hot summers day is just spectacular. At the top of the common you can see the planes begin their descent into Gatwick.
Nearby steers field is the place with the views described below so bring a picnic and let the kids run around freely in the Surrey Countryside and its breathtaking views.
A truly magical place ...
