8th May 2016: Sole Street circular

Even more members than last week turned out for the walk in this pretty stretch of countryside between Gravesend and Rochester on a hot sunny day. We began along part of the Wealdway through fields to Luddesdown, where we paused at the Golden Lion for refreshment before continuing  to the welcome shade of Cobhambury Wood for our picnic lunch. Here there were still plenty of bluebells, though past their best. In the village of Cobham we took our second refreshment break at the Leather Bottle, the pub in which Charles Dickens set some of Pickwick Papers. Passing the church and some orchards in bloom we made our way back to Sole Street station. Here, with time in hand, we visited our third pub of the day, the Railway Inn -tea this time – where we were presented with 2 plates of roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings to share!Crop2
