Walks across muddy fields for long enough and you’ll eventually end up in quaint towns and villages that may spring a few surprises.

Like this Austin A50, which more than sixty years after it first hit the road appears to be still in regular use.

A 1500cc engine pumped out 50 bhp, and allowed a top speed of over 73mph.  A slight step up from the 1200cc unit in the cheaper A40 which my Dad once had.

The Greenwich Meridian Trail continued to entertain, despite the overcast weather.

What might be around the corner, apart from a stiff climb up to The Ridgeway and The North Downs.
