Charing-North Downs way-Gliding club +RTH

Very cold ,with frost and bright clear skies and a wind to rid you of dandruff.
Starting equipped with sausage rolls from the butcher,we set off up the hill to the North Downs.
All the way along on the flat to Westwell where we turned left up the hill to the Gliding club.
Back in to the woods and then down,down,down to the Church and the car park.
We met a lady who was not a cockney and wasn't Vic Reeves' mum.
I have just had a Hot Cross Bun and strawberry jam and a pot of tea .

5 blokes and 7 miles if you include the Hypotenuse.

Alyesford to Maidstone

first let me apologise as this is not an official group walk . For family reasons I have not been able to join the group lately and when there is no blog I get a e mail from a lady in Australia asking why . so this may delay that e mail
This was just a walk with my wife on a lovely sunny Sunday from Aylesford to Maidstone along the river bank, then returning along the same route . Just under 8 miles
