Richard's Photo Gallery - Silent Pool

There runs a road by Merrow Down -
A grassy track today it is -
An hour out of Guildford town,
Above the river Wey it is.

This small lake ('pond' does't sound so romantic) was very poular in Victorian times for no very clear reason. What you see here is what you get.

Follow the A25 up to the top of the hill and you come to Newlands Corner. This has excellent views to the south, and an information centre. In the middle distance you can make out part of the village of Albury.
