KENT AND EAST SUSSEX RAILWAY
It was Raining with a capital R. A TV film crew were on the A20 filming the obvious.All local roads gridlocked,but we all arrived at Tenterden on time and bought our tickets£12.80 and set off for Bodiam Castle at a gentle clatter.We disembarked,and walked to the castle ,fed the ducks,had a coffee,a mooch around and then back to the station where a Diesel set awaited our pleasure.We got off at Wittersham road and walked down to and along Reading sewer.
Clams pike,eel,etc all had been dredged up along the bank.
We turned north at Smallhythe road,then south to the correct path,to Pichill farm Coneyboro wood and back along the valley,passing hundreds of Pheasant and Mallards(more that you could shake a stick at)Arriving back at Tenterden we had the customary Magnum and made our way home ,where it started to pour with rain again.
6.5 miles (going on 16) 5 blokes ,grey damp,(so was the weather)
