Catching ‘Real’ Sharks At Box Hill

Our Saturday’s usually consist of dropping the big ones at their chosen activities at its just me and the youngest two that meet up with my sister to go out and find some fun.

We were very indecisive today and finally decided to take a walk up at Box Hill.  She was not so keen on the idea as she was sporting 5 inch heels!


Instead of taking our usual drive up to the top of the hill, today we decided to find the stepping stones that we had not visited before.  This proved a little tricky as the signposts were not great and we tried several different locations until we finally found our way.  

We took a picturesque walk through Burford Medow which takes you alongside the River Mole.  There were plenty of trees to clamber over, a rope swing over the river that none of us were brave enough to try and a beautiful bridge that we stopped on to play ‘pooh sticks’ for a while. 


A coupe of minutes on we got to the stunning stepping stones.  It was so calm and serine, a real beauty spot.


Number four was very annoyed that I wouldn’t let him bound over on his own and he was making my nerves bad by fishing for ‘real’ sharks over the edge with his stick!


We spent a good while here by the waters edge, digging in the mud and having sword fights with sticks.

These are always my favourite kind of days.  Wandering through the countryside really letting kids be kids with their imaginations running wild.  I mean I bet you didn’t know there were sharks in Surrey!!
