A strange piece of trivia on Box Hill, along the North Downs Way: a tombstone that reads "Quick, An English Thoroughbred" dating back to the 1940s.
This is, it appears, the final resting place of a Greyhound. Particularly the favourite Greyhound of the wife of the former owner of the land on which the footpath passes nowadays. There is also a nice bench with a view towards the south that offers a nice spot for a short rest or snack break.
