St Ann's Hill, Chertsey

I took a walk upto St Ann's Hill today.  Certainly a good place to go on a sunny day like today.  A steady climb of 45 minutes.  Was surprised that one could see the Heathrow airport from up there.  I actually calculated and noticed that a flight takes off every 4 mins.  Then the Thorpe water park is also visible from the point I spent some time at.

 This particular torch was erected in 1928 and has been occasionally lit on special occasions. I think only about 5 other times, since then.  And what is it serving as when not being used officially for some ceremonial purpose? As a korfball basket by children!! All sorts of bottles and scrap is targetted into it!
