We parked at Lenham car park on a warm bright spring morning and cut across Lenham Square as the start of the walk when we were accosted by a voice from the cafe we were passing . It was our former leader and the rest (2) of our cycling offshoot .
Their idea of a cycling day out was a train, with their bikes for show , to Lenham then sit in a cafe with bacon sarnies .
To prove we don't mind lowering our standards we joined then for a cuppa and chat.
So passed a very pleasant 15 minutes , but being keen our walking group insisted we set off on our walk
We cut through the grounds of Lenham Church where there were a lot of spring flowers coming out .
Following the public footpath through East Lenham onto Mount Castle Farm with its lovely large pond .
This footpath leads through Mount Pleasant and the Old Chapel where we stopped for 5 minutes for a chat to the owner. Then into Bull Heath where we stopped for a short break to enjoy the day . By now we had noticed one of our members had left his rucksack and food in the afore mentioned cafe . After this stop it was onto Lenham Heath and joining the Stour Valley walk , on passed the sewage works on a short hop back into Lenham
Here we were treated to a Magnum by our expert photographer JC
