Historic Tour of Forest Hill

A big thank you to Steve Grindlay from the Forest Hill Society for a brilliant tour of Forest Hill's historical highlights! About 70 people took part, undeterred by a bit of rain and the cold. From the lowlands of South Road, Steve led us ever higher up the Hill finally reaching the summit at the top of Canonbie Road. He really is a fantastic source of information and conveys it with great enthusiasm.
The event was obviously very popular so we shall try to persuade Mr Grindlay to devise another tour in the not-too-distant future!
