Acer Parmatum Perpureum or something
Tree Fellers(Irish for three fellows)
A lovely sunny and slightly misty perfect autumn day.We RV at Leeds Church car park and strolled through the graveyard to Battel hall and thence to the Leeds cricket pitch,and across to the footpath to Broomwood church.Through woods and around ploughed fields with lovely views of the trees turning colour on the North Downs.As we approached the Broomwood road ,I temporarily lost the footpath ,as it had been incorporated into someone's garden!We checked with the owner that it was OK to proceed and carried on towards the church after crossing the road.
from the church ,with its massive Yew tree,we again walked along field paths to Spion Kop farm at Water lane(aptly named as it was muddy as usual)we paused for a while to watch a trout swimming in an old water cress bed.On we plodded and came to the road that led us over the high speed rail link and the motorway.A little further on we arrived at Harrietsham and the Roebuck pub.Lunch was ordered and after the walk the pub was a bit warm,we took our time,and after an hour or so,and an excellent lunch we set off back.The sun had disappeared by this time and it was a little colder.The route varied a bit so that we could take in the grounds of Leeds Castle,using one of the many footpaths that criss-cross the grounds.We arrived back at the car park,and took leave of each other until next week.
