We recently made our annual autumn pilgrimage to one of the most wonderful places in the South East of England in which to observe the fall landscape.
We drove through the very familiar, winding roads of the Surrey Hills to reach the starting point of our Sunday walk through the ancient woodland up to Leith Hill. Join us as we make our ascent.

The grand prize for making it all the way to the top is this romantic vision......
At Leith Hill's summit is the 18th century fairy-tale Gothic tower. You can climb the stairs to the top for a better view of the surrounding countryside or if your legs are a bit tired after all that hill walking, there's a lovely little cabin at the bottom of the tower selling home made tea and cake.
It boasts one of the highest points in Surrey and on a clear day, there are panoramic views of the surrounding thirteen counties. It is also possible with the aid of a natty little telescope to see the English Channel to the south and the clock face of Big Ben to the north.
Those making the climb up the spiral staircase are rewarded with these magnificent views.
