OVER HINDHEAD AND INTO HAMPSHIRE THROUGH LIPHOOK

OVER HINDHEAD AND INTO HAMPSHIRE THROUGH LIPHOOK

The old road to Portsmouth used to climb almost to the very summit (895 feet) of Hindhead, and passed the spot where the gibbet was erected for the three, famous murderers. A cross (top right) marks the site of the beams whence they rotted. But now the road takes a kinder gradient round the inner lip of the Devil's Punchbowl (bottom). A way up to the cross can be seen to the right of the photograph. Beyond the forty-third milestone from London we cross the Hampshire border into Liphook (top left), where, at the Anchor, Pepys once rested.
