Bluebell Hill To Medway Bridge 26/03/08
Due to various reasons we were a very depleted group , just 3 old codgers who set off from the picnic spot at the top of Bluebell Hill and walked along very muddy tracks in the direction of the Medway Bridge
The weather was very overcast with a forecast of rain but very warm considering it was still March . All the tracks through the woods very very slippery due to the recent rain. We passed the side of the Robin Hood public house and continued down into the valley. Eventually we made the path along side the noisy M2 motorway and Eurostar railway line. Great views throughout but very little in the way of people or wild life
At the Medway Bridge we crossed over looking down on a brown looking River Medway at low tide . After crossing the bridge we stopped for a coffee break and welcome rest then back across the bridge. The return was to join the North Downs Way towards Aylesford which is understood to have been one of Charles Dickens favourite walks ( Aylesford to Rochester ) . Passing the " Shoulder Of Mutton " woods with its ancient burial site . Finally after a total of about 9 miles we arrived back very tired at the starting place View South From Starting Point
