Bluebell Hill

You may have noticed that there have not been many blogs lately, that is due to various circumstances including typical English weather
This week luckily everything was in our favour and 7 of us met up at the car park near the top of Bluebell Hill near Chatham and the weather was just right with a hint of morning mist
We turned left out of the car park and walked along the road where we took the turning towards The Robin Hood pub but just prior to the pub we took the public footpath down Bluebell Hill
Just before reaching the M2 and Medway bridge we then joined the North Downs Way and took the slow slow climb up to the top and simply followed this back to the RV point
TC says 5.5 miles my fitbit recorded 6.5 miles and with the sun out at the end a rather warm walk

Next week Chartham
