To Borough Green (by rail) and back (on foot)
TOP;Inn at Offham
2 Oast houses used traditionally to dry hops the top is wind-oriented
3 Plaxtol Church graveyard
4 The quintain for lance practice on the village green
A cold -6C day with bright sunshine and no wind.
Train from E.Malling to Borough Green and then back across country through Plaxtol Wood,
and sundry byways and farms to Offham,where there is a quintain on the village green.
We stopped for coffee on the park bench,and carried on through farmland into West Malling.
We returned to the Five Pointed Star,where we had such good food and service last week.
A log fire was burning in the grate,and it was nice and welcoming on a frosty morning.
Back along Lavender Lane throught the fields to E.Malling,a quick visit to the church and then back to our starting point
7.4 miles on the pedometer and about 3 or 4 hours on foot.
