    Well that is all new to me ? never knew about that before, I was expecting to see something lit-up ? Thanks for that, I'll know where to look in future. But the heading still needs to be changed, The Lee, Lee Clump and Lee Common are all my side of Chesham. The Ley is the other side, about 7 miles away.

    Why did you look for Lee
    It is Ley Hill Common ground which also covers the golf course which has access for the general public.I spoke to a golfer and he explained to me they call it all Ley Hill Common which is a large expanse including the golf course.


    It is Ley Hill Common as per my heading

    Your original heading said LEE HILL COMMON ! The reason I went there. The heading has now been changed.

    It did say Lee Hill, Clive.
    I edited after Paul mentioned it, I read the sign in your first post to check.

    Well the V1 was not the most accurate so within 7 miles of the target is not that bad
    Are you driving a Maserati or an M4 Sherman .

    Still its good for the old brain power the older you get, a bit of a mystery to get the mind going

    By the way I dont play golf but did you not think that hole looked very difficult seeing that the tee was high above the hole with large mounds all over the shop.

    An unnecessary rant for a situation you are as much to blame for as anybody. The original title said "Lee Hill Common". There is no place called Lee Hill just as there is no place called Ley Common. The sign posted by Clive quite clearly says Latimer and Ley Hill (surely you read it before setting out), whereas the Lee is near Great Missenden.

    Many moons ago I lived around here for 20 years so know Ley Hill and the Lee quite well.
