Hi … I was in Cheam on Wednesday 20th … and took this photo of Whitehall and the adjacent cottages and thought I would share it with you. After I reviewed the photo I thought it would be a bit of fun to make the picture more rural and in keeping with Whitehall so I edited it to remove the road and some of the 'modern' items and the bright blue banner … hope you like them 👍

NEW VLOG #69: IN SEARCH OF A SAXON BARROW: In this Vlog, I am off in search of a local Saxon Round Barrow (one of four) on Banstead Common in Surrey just off the A217 road (an ancient road from London to Brighton). Barrows are ancient burial mounds and during excavations in 1972, the remains of a 6ft Saxon Warrior were found along with four medieval ex*****on victims from a nearby Gallows (hence the other name of this area is 'Gally Hills'). I end the walk visiting in an earlier filming location I once used / PLEASE CLICK ON YOUTUBE LINK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS1Ew79Uo9s
