PLUCKLEY Llittle Chart EGERTON
After passing a few enormous 300 year old chestnut trees we came to Little Chart and the brick built church,and turned on to the Stour valley walk.Emerging on Pluckley road at St Mary's Church(ruined 1944)we stopped for coffee.This is where H.E.Bates was married and we think he lived next door at The Granary.Across the wheat fields towards Egerton(wheat popping and ripe)we arrived in the village and after a fight over who insisted paying for the ice creams ,we stopped for a break.Back on the Greensand way hither and thither we arrived back at Pluckley.
8 miles 6 bods warmish sunnyish dull at times but a nice walk.
Vila Velha, Espirito Santo, Brazil-hello and welcome!
