The walk this Sunday (27th) was Petts Wood to Bexley along the London Loop (about 6 miles).
From Petts Wood, the station, we walked though Petts Wood and then Scadbury Park. Once across the A20, we avoided the middle of Sidcup by walking through the grounds of Queen Mary’s Hospital. Anyone wanting a short walk (c. 4 miles) caught a bus from Footscray. The remainder of the walk followed the river Cray, ending in Old Bexley.
A very muddy, autumnal 6-mile circular walk from Wivelsfield station passing close to the grade I listed sixteenth-century Ote Hall.
We went through beautiful quiet countryside over muddy fields and paths, one of which was so flooded we all got very soggy feet.
We continued onto Wivelsfield Green where we had lunch stop and tried to dry out our feet. Then continuing through more fields where autumn mushrooms were in abundance with a fairy ring of Parasol mushrooms, we descended to the station, muddy but satisfied after a good sunday walk. .
A beautiful a September Sunday found 11 of us walking through Kent accompanied by 2 small dogs, Woody and Fred. A circular walk from Hayes meandering through dappled sunlight under trees still in full leaf passing the Wilberforce Oak where a plaque has been erected. Across a dried ploughed field with unforgiving stubble, which was a bit of a challenge, particularly for those wearing sandals led to lunch break at Leaves Green.
After lunch a few ups and downs in the terrain but all happily completed and ended the day with coffee, waiting for the return train to Charing Cross.
A walk from Sevenoaks, not visiting Knole Park (!) and instead heading west along the Greensand ridge (and Way) to Chartwell.
From Sevenoaks station, we head south west through some posh bits of Sevenoaks, soon giving way to woodland, to Bayley’s Hill. There we turn west and start following the greensand escarpment, with great views dropping away to the south. Lunch will be somewhere along this section, and we will also stop at Ide Hill which is both a viewpoint and a village with a pub:
After Ide Hill we carry on west along the Greensand Way to Toy’s Hill and French Street, ending at Chartwell:
