Tandridge Border Path – Stone Quarry

After all my numerous long distance trails I’ve now had almost an entire year without completing any significant walk.

Some of you may have spotted rather more book reviews, and considerably less beautiful scenery.

My change of circumstances were brought about by osteoporosis, and a sub-chondral knee fracture.

Once I’d managed to by pass my local GP and get into the NHS hospital and specialist care my treatment and care was exemplary.

Who even knew bones can bruise? I didn’t. After various X-rays, and a few MRI scans my MSK specilaist and physio agreed.

My exercise regime had worked, and the Vitamin D tablets had brought about a remarkable healing.

Fifty weeks after finishing The Greensand Way the sun was shining, and I set out on my next significant trail.

The Tandridge Border Path. Neither of us have had anything like enough exercise in months, so our departure from the Stoney Cross part of East Grinstead was a rather special occasion.

We parked one car in Woodlands Road and headed north towards Dormans Station.

I’ll probably share one more photo from the 6.5 mile stage to Hedgecourt Lake, but for now perhaps I’ll just list the bird species seen along the way

Blackbird, BH Gull, Buzzard, Canada Geese, Crow, Egyptian Geese, Great Crested Grebe, Great Tit, Greylag Goose, House Sparrow, Jackdaw, Jay, Long Tailed Tit, Magpie, Mallard, Moorhen, Mute Swan, Pheasant, Robin, Wood Pigeon and Wren.

We also spotted an immaculate fox and a charging herd of 33 Fallow Deer.
