There is also a miniature railway from which all profits go to the Evelina Hospital.   Not seen it yet so no pictures.

In Isfield Village, a farm shop and  butcher with locally sourced produce,  a friendly pub called ‘The Laughing Fish’ with great food and then the drive home.

    I ended up in the Laughing Fish after a long country walk one day. A nice pub, but I absolutely love its name.
