TQ1850 : Grazing land, Lower Box Hill Farm

taken 7 years ago, near to Brockham, Surrey, Great Britain

Grazing land, Lower Box Hill Farm
Grazing land, Lower Box Hill Farm
Belted Galloway cattle grazing on Lower Box Hill Farm on the slope below Box Hill. Lower Box Hill Farm was acquired by the National Trust in 1999, and the Trust has an agreement with the Surrey Wildlife Trust to overwinter much of the SWT's stock of Belted Galloway cattle, used in the summer for grazing the downland in its care.

Here is the grazing land viewed against the afternoon sun, with Denbies Vineyard and Ranmore in the background, on the other side of the Mole Gap.

The footpath across the field, although not marked on maps as such, is the "missing link" in a series of paths which follow the base of the North Downs between Dorking and Reigate, much of it along the supposed route of the "Pilgrim's Way".
