this is one of our fall back walks that we do when we get a bit stuck for thinking where to walk
Six of us met up this week at the Hucking Country Park on a rather cold and overcast day . The ground was very muddy but to be expected after the recent rain . With no plan or route in mind we simply wandered here there and everywhere enjoying the views and company Nothing exciting to report just a 5.5 mile stroll . Sorry photos not much but with the very overcast weather there was not that much scope for good photographs
Gives you an idea of what it was like underfoot

Hook and Hatchet pub now closed

Wood carvings of wild boar

Has anyone any idea what the pens are for . There are no openings or anything planted in them

Caymer Park and beyond

Only five of us this week met up at Caymer Park near Meaphom on a very windy morning , after all the rain it was obvious from the start it was going to be very muddy underfoot
I will insert a description of where we walked when our leader for the day sends it to me, I never have the faintest idea where we have been
All I do know is the tea shop was closed so much for leaders planning

This added later from our leader for the day

Starting out from Camer Park we travelled towards Sole Street. After crossing the Sole Street railway bridge we joined the Wealdway and followed this as far as Ifield Court where we took a path across the field towards Jeskyns Park. Joining the road running towards New Cottages we then took another path which took us to Jeskyns Road and the route into Cobham. On arrival at Cobham Church we took the regulatory lunch without the regulatory sandwiches in anticipation of refreshments at Daffs Cafe at the end of the route. Eager to enjoy a bacon sandwich we set off across the orchard and over the main railway line to Victoria. We were rewarded with a  muddy field of cabbages which led to us rejoining the Wealdway for about ten metres.  We then took the path which led back into Camer Park. Upon arrival at the carpark we were bitterly disappointed to find that Daffs Cafe was closed - good planning or what!. 

Looking for his friend Mr Carter

You tell me how a car wing got up the tree

Another bit of a car

Look carefully and you can see the car wing up the tree in the middle of the photo

Description from our leader Mr TC

From car park in Charing we go past Archbishop's Palace through church yard and follow path to Pets Lane. Turn right and then left along Toll Lane to T- Junction, turn right and then follow the North Downs Way for about 2 miles until you reach a track on your left. Follow this track up past Charing gliding club until you reach Squids Gate Farm, turn left up track between Gliding club and Dencher Wood and return back to start of N D W. From here retrace route back to Charing.
7 of us on a cloudy but warm day and lots of hills and round about 7 miles
