Date 1997 August 2nd.
The line of copper beeches, which you see near top left, leads up to the site where stood the 11th. node of the London to Portsmouth semaphore line. On the proverbial good day the operators had views to the Isle of Wight, so it should have been easy to see node #12, just 4km to the south. The original building was replaced early in the 20th. century.

On the right the hamlet of North Marden (?).
