Memories of Box Hill

Box Hill By Bike

I used to go to Box Hill from Hanwell with my friend David Potts on our bikes. This was around 1959/60. I remember the very slow ride to the top. On the way back I remember the wonderful cycle track. It was a long run back via, Esher, Hampton Court, Twickenham, and Bentford.
