How to use Alföld in a sentence
Has it ever been noticed that the Alfold, Dunsfold, and Hambledon yews stand almost in a mathematically straight line?
Alfold, too, has a great old yew-tree, one of a row of three in the Fold churchyards.
From Alfold to Hambledon is five miles as the crow flies, and Dunsfold is almost exactly half way between the two.
Of the three, Alfold has hardly begun to grow, Dunsfold straggles, and Chiddingfold sits compact about its sunny green.
Alfold almost touches the Sussex boundary, and is perhaps the most out-of-the-way little village in Surrey.
