Description
"Newlands View"

Taken from the slopes at Newlands corner looking southwest we see the ridge in the distance known as Lidwell Copse. I was hoping to see on the summit The Church of St.Martha on-the-hill, however it is hidden behind the trees and a much longer walk would be required to see the church. The site has had a church/chapel there since saxon times but an explosion severely damaged the church in 1745 when an accident at a gunpowder factory further down the hill caused the damage. Re-built in !850 the church remains today , BUT there is not a road to it only a sandy track and the climb is said to take 15 minutes !! Dedication.
