Hollingbourne

The Hills Get Steeper and We Get Older
On an overcast but warm day 6 of us met up at Cobham Manor Riding Stables just off the Pilgrims Way between Hollingbourne and Detling
Our leader and map reader with a sadistic streak led us up one hill after another with each hill being steeper than the last . After lots of forced stops and near heart attacks we stumbled out the woods into a clearing but with glorious views down onto the green fields of Kent in the area near Hollingbourne .
Here we took the opportunity to stop for a quick drink and snack but also to recover .
Then once again up another hill , we are certain he plans the walks to take in the maximum hills possible .
At one stage we had to literally force our way through a very overgrown woods and yes it was up hill. Mathematics being what it is determined that what goes up must come down and not before time this was what we had to do. Dropping down to the Pilgrims Way , and a rather zig zag route back to the stables
