SUTTON VALENCE CASTLE TO ULCOMBE CHURCH.

Terry apologies for my wild goose chase but it looks like the hedge we should have gone through was overgrown you can see bottom left where it leads on to the school and also the back service road by the garages top centre where we emerged



Each of these tunnels was a kilometer long(plus)and there were hundreds of them
I said good morning to a fruit picker in 4 languages and she responded in Bulgarian.


BUSTED!




I.D Please? Blueberries? on Useless NIPEX

Crystal Gayle "here I go down that wrong road again" 


last walked in November 2010 a few pix from that time
The Yew said to be 2,500 years old.
ABSOLUTE  PROOF

The last 3 are from 11/2010 we were discussing when we last did this walk.A lovely day warm with a breeze.Masses of Poly Tunnels with Strawberrys by the mile and they actually tasted sweet unlike the EMR ones, pairs maybe 3 pairs of Buzzards along the ridge line ,using the thermals ,and a lone kestrel.Coffee break at the church by the old Yew.No Roman stuff visible in the church fabric.A few hilly bits otherwise flat.



4 chaps 5 or 6 miles .

Herne Bay to Whitstable



No official walk this week so I met up with out fellow walker from Thanet who is still recovering from a major operation and wanted a bit of exercise. So just the two of us met at the good old favourite Hampton Pier Herne Bay and walked to Whitstable and back 8 miles ,all flat but with a strong North North East wind blowing off the sea making it all a bit uncomfortable . Still the coffee in Whitstable helped and the coffee and cake on the return leg helped even more.As this is a walk we have done so many times the photos were taken just for fun rather than showing the route 
















THE FRIARS AYLESFORD

No Hike this week but breakfast at Papa's Barn and then on to the Friars Carmelite Monastery.
