5th October 2014: Wadhurst to Tunbridge Wells

This was a hurriedly organised walk, replacing one cancelled for dental reasons, and just four of us met up at London Bridge station. We took the Hastings line down to Wadhurst, two stops beyond Tunbridge Wells.

Eridge Park

The first part of the walk headed west along the Sussex Border Path for about three miles until we entered the prairie-like Eridge Park, with magnificent views across the High Weald. We stopped for lunch, then followed a Permissive Path running just within the Park to reach the hilltop village of Frant, and its pub.

We then descended towards Tunbridge Wells, managing to find a route into the town centre that almost competely avoided roads. Veronica needed to catch the first train back to London, but Mark and Steve joned me for tea and cake in the Pantiles.
