AYLESFORD TO BLUBELL HILL

It was raining lightly,we parked by the bridge and set off round the back of the church in the wrong direction.Coming back,we found the correct path off the top of Mount Pleasant and walked around the edge of the quarry,which excavates Folkestone sand and is a startling 1000 years old.Dr Who has been filmed here a few times ,simulating an alien planet.Across the fields to Eccles and then crossing the "pilgrims way"we set off up the hill by the Great Culand,very steep very hard work lots of grunting and panting etc.At the top we turned back down the old road and dropped down to Kits Coty ancient burial site.The across to Pratling Street and the village and to the Chequers pub for a swift half.
5 miles 3 chaps.this was after breakfast at Papas Ditton with 6 of us .
