LEYBOURNE LAKES COUNTRY PARK
Following a gale warning,we postponed our Calais trip and instead visited the above.
Not as large as some of kent's country parks,it was nevertheless well kept with nice graded paths and pleasant outlook.However the motorway was a bit close in places.A new housing development is situated overlooking the old quarry lakes.Parking and information was good,but there is no snack bar,although we did find one all by itself up by the railway line that did a nice breakfast.A good place to walk the dog or go for a cycle ride.We did about 2 to 3 miles along the paths.
Oh yes, how did we get there? M20 /A228 turn off by Ham Hill roundabout at Snodland(by Shell garage) parking is 50p and its a safe sort of place to visit,lots of lady joggers and stuff,people walking their dogs.And old gits with hiking sticks.
