Day out location essentials

Leith Hill, the highest point in south east England at 293 meters, is a beautiful wooded hill a few miles south of Dorking in Surrey. The hill's first notable role in history was as a battlefield in the ninth century struggle between Saxons and Danes. In 851AD the Danes planned a full scale invasion, after raiding the country regularly for many years. In later history Leith Hill was to become a symbol of peace. As the Industrial Revolution gathered pace in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, there was a romantic reaction against the new society.
