On the cover: On this month’s cover, shot for us by regular Surrey Life snapper John Miller, we bring you one of the stunning new sculptural benches now dotted across the Surrey Hills as part of the Inspiring Views project. The idea? To highlight some of the best views across this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. So, if you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a lovely autumn walk, you can read more about it all in November’s Surrey Life magazine.
