St Ann's Hill

We went for a nice walk on the St Ann's Hill Nature trail in Runnymead. There were loads of interesting smells. Its a really old wood apparently the chapel of St Ann stood on this hill in 1334, and before that it was the site an iron age fort when it was called Eldbury Hill prior to the Roman invasion of Britain in 43AD which sounds quite a while ago.



I dashed about all over the place looking for stuff and things but didn't catch anything.

Hi Janine, we live just over the border in Middlesex so we were sort of neighbors!
