1 December 2013: Knockholt to Otford

Don led this eight mile walk on the North Downs. In the morning we did the surprisingly long walk from Knockholt station to the main village at Knockholt Pound, where we had lunch and a pub stop.

After lunch we detoured for a view down through the woods to Chevening, the country mansion of William Hague (sort of). We then toured the security fence of Fort Halsted, a now-closed military testing site, before dropping down steeply off the North Downs into the Darenth valley, and a final walk through Otford to the station.
