Aylesford to Maidstone

Aylesford To Maidstone 2nd April 2008

Five us us this week met at Aylesford car park on a overcast drizzle sort of day and set off along the side of the River Medway towards Maidstone. We have done this walk before but decided to deviate by cutting along very muddy footpaths inland but still following the footpath. This took us through a boatyard , over the railway line and pass odds and ends of industrial works. We kept to this route until we came to the Locks at the Malta Inn where we crossed over the river to join our familiar riverside walk on the North side of the river. This path was easier to navigate , ie less mud and simply followed it pass Allington Castle ( on the far bank) to Maidstone. On the way stopping to watch a pleasure cruiser being lifted into the water. Upon reaching Maidstone we stopped for a flask of coffee and well earned snacks. Suitably refreshed we simply retraced our steps back to Aylesford although when we got to the Malta Inn we kept to the North bank. This proved a bit of mistake as it was very muddy and did not provide pleasant walking
