Spring Meeting, May 2017
The Henry Williamson Society Spring Meeting 2017
Friday 19 May – Sunday 21 May
The village of Cross Aulton in Surrey was twelve miles from Hyde Park Corner as the coach drove; but ten by way of the London, Epsom and Dorking Railway. The parish comprised nearly three thousand acres, of which four hundred were meadow land, twenty-four were water – being the river and its many tributary springs and rillets breaking our of the chalky subsoil – and the remainder occupied by railways, public roads, and market gardens.
