This weeks outing started out with seven of us meeting up at the car park adjacent to the church at Linton on a very foggy and cold day We were honoured with the presence of one of the originators of this walking group .As I never have the faintest idea where we go this week I asked our leader to put together the following directions

Park in St Nicholas church car-park then head east beside Linton Park to Loddington Farm, cross road follow track to Boughton Monchelsea church. From here follow Greensand Way past Deer Park to track sign on your right,go down hill path and into Deer Park on your right and follow pathway right to gateway onto a lane.Turn right and follow lane to T-junction turn left then right at pathway sign just past Church Farm Barn and follow path through a wood then an apple orchard to a lane. Turn left and then right at next pathway sign into Linton Park then keep on path to gate at A229 just below Linton village.Cross road turn right then left at Wheelers Lane and after about 800m turn left at Barnes Lane for about 250m then right at pathway sign beside Bramley Cottage.Walk up right hand side of orchard to a gate turn right up hill and over a stile to a lane turn left and then right at sign showing the way back to Linton Church car-park.

it was minus 2C when we left home to meet up by the side of the river in Faversham . The ground was covered with a heavy frost when 7 of us set up along the side of the river into Faversham town . Then heading north we again walked along the side of the river and through the boatyard by now the sun was out and was slowly warming us up . This was turning out to be a great day not to be at work but the down side was it was thawing out the ground making the ground very muddy . Here we cut of east along the pathways  to Graveney church where we stopped for a welcome break . Then onwards back across the fields to Faversham with a brief stop for a great cup of tea and scone 8 Miles all told . The only down side was carer to the oldest member kept failing in his duty and had to receive a verbal warning but being a youngster we don't think he took much notice
