Last Sunday, (before my awful week began!) we visited the Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede as part of a lovely walk in the autumn sunshine. The memorial is a moving tribute to the 20,000 airmen and women who lost their lives in the second world war and have no known graves. Situated on a hill, there are commanding views from an observation tower for miles around.
The approach to the memorial is flanked by rows of sweet chestnut trees.
At this time of year they are, of course laden with their wonderful spiky fruits that contain the nuts. They were in abundance both on and under the trees last week.
