Bluebell Hill

You may have noticed that there have not been many blogs lately, that is due to various circumstances including typical English weather
This week luckily everything was in our favour and 7 of us met up at the car park near the top of Bluebell Hill near Chatham and the weather was just right with a hint of morning mist
We turned left out of the car park and walked along the road where we took the turning towards The Robin Hood pub but just prior to the pub we took the public footpath down Bluebell Hill
Just before reaching the M2 and Medway bridge we then joined the North Downs Way and took the slow slow climb up to the top and simply followed this back to the RV point
TC says 5.5 miles my fitbit recorded 6.5 miles and with the sun out at the end a rather warm walk

Next week Chartham

Wye kent

Rain,lots of it,however  it was temperate,so we set out up through the village across fields,very picturesque,and up an almost vertical hill which was the Devil's Kneading Trough.The views from the top,even in this bad weather were spectacular.We then set off down another hill to the flood plain and through a very quiet Wye College to the Village car park.
7 of us 5 miles

6 of us met up on a very humid morning in the car park near Doddington Church , it was great that Mr JC was one of the 6 and he has not been able to join us for some time He was especially welcome in that he keeps Barry in check
We took the public footpath that starts in the corner of the car park , it was then apparent that what we thought was going to be easy going was dead the opposite . The corn field had just been harvested and we were forced to walk over short stubble which is not very comfortable Then the next field had been ploughed and that was harder We eventually arrived at the parish church of Kingsdown Onwards to Torrey Hill then back to Doddington after calling into a plum orchard only to find we were a few weeks too early
A very tiring 6.25 miles
