Unseen World: Sandrock Hill
8. Sycamore leaves in the wind, Sandrock Hill Road.
I was always intrigued by that name, Sandrock Hill. When spoken, the words 'sand' and 'rock' run together, like 'Sandra', but in my musings on words, read over and over on the bus, eventually they separated and became associated with the parable of the man who built his house on sand, and the other man who built his house on rock. How could there be both in one hill? I had visions of all the houses on Sandrock Hill being washed away in an autumn storm because of their insufficient foundations.
