2 August River Medway towpath Tonbridge-Yalding

A "Park and Ride "bus to Maidstone and then a train to Tonbridge on the pretty Medway valley line.Sunny at first but clouding over later with a threat of rain,about 18 C.
A walk up Tonbridge high street to join the Medway valley walk along the towpath.
A mix of industrial,residential and can't make its mind up land,and then out into the coutryside proper.A nice flat walk with the occasional lock gate and a man with a fishing rod every mile or so.Not many people about ,but the views were pleasant ,a couple of dinghy loads of Sea Scouts from Deal negotiating the locks in an efficient manner.After about 6 miles we diverted slightly to the Rose and Crown pub for a Roast Lunch or Curry,and of course ,Beer.
After a leisurely lunch we completed the walk of 8 miles (14KM), and made our way along the path to the Rail station,and just missed a train,so waited half an hour for the next one.then the bus home in the rush hour .We will do the next link another time (Yalding -Maidstone)8 Miles
