Paleolithic rock shelter.

A freezing day ,a north wind blowing off the sea.We caught the #6 bus at Whitstable and disembarked at the water tower at canterbury.Straight on to the Crab and winkle way,and through the campus to farmland and then into the woods.A brief stop at St Cosmus church and then off .We stopped for coffee at a winding engine pond from the world's oldest passenger railway
and then carried on to Whitstable.A cold wind in the face all the way,and then the sun came out as we arrived back at Whitstable.

5 chaps 5 miles freezing cold.
there was a bitter north wind all the way from -well-the north

My tiny pond is frozen

The track bed  of the world's oldest passenger carrying railway

The world's oldest railway sleepers.
Which was greeted by the usual"shut up and drink your coffee"

If you use your imagination you can see people in tall top hats sitting in open wagons expecting to die because they were travelling at 20 mph.

To learn more,
