26 August: Petts Wood, Scadbury Park and Chislehurst

This bank holiday Monday walk started in the inter-war garden suburb of Petts Wood, before entering the wood of Petts Wood, now maintained by the National Trust.

Crossing one busy main road took us into Scadbury Park, where we had a look at the site of the old moated manor, then stopped for lunch. We then circled round the north side of Chislehurst, passing some very posh houses down private roads, before stopping for a drink at the Crown Inn.

From the pub it was a fairly short but surprisingly rural walk on to Chislehurst station.
