due to old age and members falling to pieces we were down to just five of us this week when we met up on a chilly, overcast day at Chartham then basically followed the following route written by our leader Mr TC
Park in car park opposite church and then follow Stour Valley Walk towards Canterbury until you reach bridge over railway line on A28. Turn left over bridge and then right up Howfield Lane then right at Howfield Farm and follow S V W past Tonford Manor Farm until you reach edge of A2. Turn left through gap in fence and go up edge of field and when you reach railway crossing go over turn left and follow path signs until you reach a road. Follow path on your right across small field down to edge of Bigbury Road, cross straight over into woods and follow Centenary Walk Canterbury to gate into No Mans Orchard. From here the path changes to North Downs Way which we follow up into Chartham Hatch along New Town Street and at bottom of hill turn left over stile then diagonally across field to Hatch Lane. Follow lane over railway line and turn right onto path that goes diagonally across field to edge of A28,cross straight over and follow path along side Great Stour, over railway crossing and back to car park at Chartham.
