This week with two of our members missing due to injury six of met up at Chilham car park on a rather cloudy but warm winters day . Spring being round the corner the Daffs were poking their heads out through the ground . From the outset it was obvious that the going to be very muddy going and so it proved and that plus lots of hills It proved to be a really good walk thanks mainly to great trail blazing by our leader and loads of BS by one of the founder members . The following is a description of our route as written by our leader
Park in car park at bottom of Taylor's Hill and then go up through Chilham village,turn left down Church Hill to A252, turn left for about 50yds cross road and follow track through fruit plantations until you reach Stone Stile Farm. Cross road and go up steps on left hand corner of junction, go diagonally across field through two gates into another plantation and follow track to a road, turn left and follow road to Perry Wood. Turn left up track opposite Perry Wood car park and climb a steep hill to a view point called "The Mount" then follow path down into fruit plantation and carry on until you reach gap in hedge. Go through gap onto a road turn right into Shottenden,turn right at road junction and then first left into Manor Lane and take second signed  bridle way on your left, pass Chequers Farm and keep on bridle way until you reach A252 road. Cross road,turn left and follow path back to car park at Chilham.
