With this in mind we set of as soon as possible , in fact so quick Mr P (BSA) left his walking stick on top of his car and yes it was still there when we got back 3 hours or so later . This was one of those really good walks when it was good to be retired and with friends As I have said many times I have no real idea where we walk so below is the route as penned by our leader Mr TC
Park on road near St Mary's church then walk through cemetery and out into Bourne House park, cross the Nail Bourne stream and onto Bourne Park Road .Turn left along road until you reach a track on your left opposite two cottages, go up track and follow it over old disused railway ine then down through new planted fruit orchard until you reach Pett Bottom Lane. Turn left and then right up track at Middle Pett Farm.At top of track turn left along footpath, through Whitehill Wood and down to Little Eaton Farm, turn right along lane and then left at footpath sign then right diagonally across field to edge of Gorsley Wood. Just past Gorsley House on your left you reach a lane, turn left uphill to the top and follow the second track on your right until you reach a lane called Pheasant Hall Road, turn left along lane and when you reach Langham Park Barn turn right up bridle path. When you reach path crossroad turn left follow path across field to edge of old railway track, turn left then right at road, over railway line bridge and back to Bishopsbourne.
