Borden-Bredgar

Since the weather forecast was for heavy rain (again) and we were without our leader or his deputy we thought we would do a stroll where we would not get lost . Five of us met us near Borden and along with a slightly mad dog we set off across the fields until we came to Bredgar Here we stopped for a nice cup of tea over looking the local pond Then on through Bredgar playing fields where we constantly lost the dog . The idea of this route back to Borden was our temporary leader knew where the blackberry bushes were in abundance . We all filled up our containers before carrying on to Borden Church then back to base

Wye

On a lovely summers day 6 of us met up at the car park in Wye . we choose a slightly different route from out normal one This time through the local farms watching the combined harvesters at work . This then led on to a very very very steep hill up to The Devils Kneading Trough . Here we stopped for a chance to get out breath back . After recovering we continued along the tops of the hills overlooking Wye . Finally we descended down through a lovely woods ending at Wye college where we spent five minutes picking the local blackberries . A short stroll on we eventually reached our start point About 5 miles only

Hucking Country Park

With the warning   of heavy rain for mid day just four of us has a slightly early start and planned a short walk hopefully finishing before the rains came
We parked at the Country Parks car park and headed across the road and following a bridle path into Long wood before cutting back into the country paths footpaths . A very muggy day with nothing exciting to report We eventually ended up with spectacular views overlooking Hollingbourne Church Here we stopped for a short coffee break and then slowly made our way back to the car park in a slight drizzle A short but pleasant walk About 5miles 2.5Hrs
