I led this six-mile walk which is mostly just outside Greater London but inside the M25 — and mostly pretty rural, apart from traffoc noise from the A2. We took the train to Crayford, then walked up to and over Dartford Hesth. We had lunch in Rowhill Wood then stopped off at the Ship Inn at Puddledock.
We crossed a golf course then dived deep into Joyden’s Wood. Somewhere inside the wood we entered the London Borough of Bexley but the scenery stayed pretty rural until we crossed the river Cray — a modest trickle. The final mile followed the river and the London Loop into Old Bexley.
