This is (or was)Virginia Wade's wee hoose
Check out the Topiary
whence we cometh from
Where we goest thither
A tree and a half,wouldn't you agree ?
The happy wanderers striding out
What a scary name for a church,what can the children think of it?
Strong winds do shake the darling buds of may (and the pub sign)
If you squint you can see the wind turbines off Herne Bay
A lovely little cottage deep in the woods
Lots and lots and lots of slippery leaves
Walk taken from site below:-
An excellent 9 mile walk starting at Newnham church and climbing through mature wooded countryside with which I was completely unfamiliar.The wooded hills and valleys are very pleasing to the eye.There were some excellent little cottages,converted barns ,and very large country houses in their own grounds with avenues of trees.At times the track was overgrown ,to the extent that we had to walk through the woods .We stopped for a quick sandwich an hour and a half into the walk and then set off in the wrong direction!We discovered our mistake and backtracked.
We arrived at The Plough Inn at Stalisfield and stopped for a quick coffee/beer and set off after a short break.Rain seemed to be threatening on the southern horizon,and the wind picked up.
There was intensive map reading ,but by and large we found our way without problems.
some of the walking was ploughed fields (muddy and slow)and some was on minor roads.
Next week maybe a shorter one.
