Take A Horse To Water - a Memory of Ranmore Common.

When I was about 11 or 12 in the 50's I used to ride from Bookham over to Ranmore quite often.  I would take a packed lunch in a rucksack and off I would go for the day all on my own.  When I got to Ranmore, I used to tie my pony to a tree and go in the post office and ask the man for a bucket of water for my pony.   Then we would stop on the edge of the woods somewhere, I'd sit on a log or on my jumper or coat on the ground and let my pony graze whilst I ate my lunch and read a book.
