When I went down for dinner last night I found out that the pub is under new management from Monday and that much of the food was off, I made some comment that I hoped there would be some left tomorrow. Still it was nice Ham.

When I went to breakfast there was no one about and 7 of us had to wait fifteen minutes.

Still I got fed and the sun was shining.

Local info (Tricia) suggested that one of my target churches wasn't open but I may get in after the service. So.....

712 St Sophia, the Wisdom of God. Lower Kingswood.

713 All Saints, Ockham

is another that is difficult to get into but I arrived JUST as the service was finishing.

Ockham's most famous son is the Franciscan William of Ockham who formulated Occam's Razor.

So off to Clandon a small but pleasant National Trust property.

just up the road is another National Trust Hatchland's Park the home of the Cobbe Collection.

714 St Mary, Stoke D'Abernon

I had thought I'd mop up Surrey today but the final church was locked and the vicar not answering his phone. Oh well.

Anyway a successful day and I returned to my hostelry to be told they didn't serve food Sunday nights. GASP!!! I was not impressed! I went on the road and neither did the next pub. Is this Surrey or rural Wales in the 50's? Thankfully the White Horse at Shere came to my rescue.
