Bullet point 5: Philip and Jumoke King have e-mailed the following comment. Bullet point 5 mentions a set of steps on the left.....'but we couldn’t resist running up to see what was up there. We found a fabulous view and a memorial stone to Flt. Lt. Richard Reynell of 43 Squadron, RAF, who perished there in September 1940 when his Hurricane was shot down. He was an Australian, 28 years old, and already an experienced test pilot for Hawker. He had rejoined 43 Squadron in order to evaluate how the Hurricane performed in actual combat and was due to return to Hawker the day he was killed. The stone was laid in 2013.' 

Bullet point 6 should be amended as below:
  • Follow Maidenstone Hill downhill then turn right into Dutton Street and left into Trinity Grove. Walk down Trinity Grove to reach Dabin Crescent at the bottom.' 
This has been revised in 2013 reprint.

page 90 The Valley of the Ravensbourne

Final bullet point should read Ellerdale Road not Ellerdale Street
