WYE CRUNDALE NORTH DOWNS WAY
















A lovely sunny ,temperate day.We started at Wye church,where the daffs were about to come out.Through the Imperial College grounds and up into the hills.Already,the views were stunning,and it was difficult to keep walking,because of the distraction.A lot of rain the previous few nights had made the going very soft and a couple of our number fell on their arses.Across a south facing meadow,where there were hundreds and hundreds of primroses.We were then climbing steep hills again,and arrived at Crundale church,where we stopped for lunch.
We set off again along a very muddy green lane through the woods and after a bit of dithery map-reading arrived at the nature reserve on the top of Wye Downs.The views were outstanding,and we could see from the English Channel at Dungeness to Flimwell in Sussex.
A 4 wheel buggy passed us and ,being unable to get more then halfway up a 40 degree hill,had to drop its passenger off and reverse down ths slope.

Through more very slippery woods and back towards the town of Wye,a walk of about 8.5 miles ,taking 4 hours (6 of us)
