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

RV @ Carpark by bridge,then off along the Medway ,crossing over at East Farleigh ,up the hill,through the pear orchards we rested twice ,once on a village green .A walk of about 5 miles,greyish not too
hot,quite pleasant.5 chaps (2 off sick GWS)
Manet? no nude I'm afraid .

Thanks for the biscuits Ruth,we were only 5,so were unable to do them justice.Could you provide a hot drink and maybe some cucumber sandwiches and some fancy cakes and vol-au-vents,followed by trifle and cream?

8 this week met at the car park by Doddington Church Only JB missing , hurry on back JB I need someone sensible to talk to
Rather a damp overcast start we set off past Doddington Church then through Sharsted Woods on following the footpaths to Lynsted Park It was near here we stopped for a short break and to admire the lovely cherries in the public orchard A really nice spot to sit and enjoy the Kent countryside . Forcing ourselves to get moving we walked into the village of Lynsted and took the footpath opposite the local Church .This led us to Loyerton Farm and onto Champions Court By now the sun had shown its self and it became very hot and hard going We had a much needed rest and being all men put the world to rights . Onwards now really feeling the heat we went via Sharsted Court, the woods and eventually Doddington Church and our cars
We were told by TC it would be about 5 1/2 miles and I know we did divert from the plan we ended up walking about 8.25 miles
