Godalming is a little Surrey town I used to visit every weekend with my family. We'd potter around the independent shops (my particular favourite was the dolls house shop!) then we'd buy crumbly cheese twists from the bakers and sit and eat them by the River Wey - really lovely, happy memories! So this week my Mum and I decided to take our first proper trip there in years, and found it to be a perfect place to stroll with Mia too! It was a very overcast humid day so we took our time wandering around in the "fresh" air, I wish it would either be sunny or rain, I can't bear this in-between weather!
We walked along the river and found it to be very overgrown compared to how it was before, I understand this encourages wildlife and wild plants but you can't clearly see the river anymore! There are lots of benches to sit and picnic, and if you are walking along that way I recommend a visit to the memorial to Jack Phillips, the brave local Chief Wire Telegraphist who died at his post on the Titanic. There are also these jolly little allotments which I always love to stop and stare at, the British flag was lacking breeze but it still made me smile! There were gorgeous proud Hollyhocks, a sea of healthy Nasturtiums, beans peas and squashes. All the plots were very well looked after, all in the shadow of the riverside Willow trees and the beautiful Godalming church, what a perfect place to have a little vegetable patch!
