    DOUBLE RAINBOW

    Leatherhead seem to have the right conditions for producting beautiful rainbows. I often see them out my window and one day, there was even a double rainbow! I quickly grabbed my camera!

    Fire and Iron Gallery

    In the outbuildings of a farmhouse built in 1450, which looks like it escaped from a book of nursery rhymes, is a gallery dedicated to work by artist blacksmiths, displaying the amazing versatility of the medium. Practical pieces of furniture are displayed next to life-size steel animals and fantasy creations. They had some striking pieces of jewellery and some surprisingly delicate pieces too.

    They also hold blacksmithing demonstrations and exhibitions dedicated to specific artists. When I visited there was a display of work in glass and metal which was very eye catching.

    Some of the pieces are made of objects which are recycled and it was fascinating to spot everyday objects such as old nails and garden shears in a piece of artwork.

    The work on display is for sale but there is no pressure to buy anything.

    LEATHERHEAD SOCIETY

    This building houses the library and is down the street from the famous Thorndyke Theatre, home of the Michael Caine Awards each May. And yes, he does attend. The Society was formed by a Mr. Dixon who retired to Leatherhead and the building dates back to 1892. This is where I've taken a French class for the past months!

    HIGH STREET

    Leatherhead has a lovely High St. This part allows cars, but there's a long section which is just for pedestrians and there are quite a few good restaurants, pubs, shops and a nice shopping centre.. The Swan.

    Bridge on Bridge St.

    No trip to Leatherhead is complete without a stroll over the Bridge Street bridge. Do not confuse this with the South Central's railroad bridge which is nearby. Bridge St. will lead you right onto the High St.
