West Kent Christmas lunch walk - Pembury - 2nd December, 2018

3 Dec 2018 | West Kent Group

Another excellent Christmas lunch walk this year for the West Kent group which began yesterday morning at Pembury village green. The weather forecast had been threatening rain all week but in the event we were blessed with dry, mild weather, even the occasional spot of sunshine. The short morning walk took us through wooded areas, orchards, and farms. It was very wet underfoot and we were all glad to get back to Pembury to swap our muddy trousers and boots ready for the usual Christmas lunch. We were not disappointed, ...

West Kent - Peasmarsh circular walk, 4th November 2018

5 Nov 2018 | West Kent Group

Another beautiful autumnal day for this month's walk with unbelievably warm temperatures; is it really November ? This walk from Peasmarsh was cancelled in March due to the 'Beast from the East' but today we had some great views over Sussex countryside and we also passed Paul McCartney's estate. Our lunch stop was on a steep slope overlooking a flood plain with views over to Rye, Rye Harbour and the sea beyond. The walk ended with a visit to a local pub back in Peasmarsh with some really nice Sussex beers and ales on tap....

West Kent - Groombridge, Harrison's Rocks, Buckhurst Park, and the Medway valley - 7th Oct 2018

In the end, this was a 10 mile circular walk crossing the Spa Valley railway line and took in Harrison's Rocks, the hamlet of Mott's Mill, Buckhurst Park, near Withyham, and part of the upper Medway valley. Great views all around, just as the trees are starting to change colour. We are so lucky to have such stunning countryside all around us to walk through and enjoy....

West Kent - Alfriston & South Downs, 2nd Sept 2018

3 Sep 2018 | West Kent Group

This month's walk was in glorious sunshine from the charming town of Alfriston in Sussex. We started the climb from the town on the South Downs Way and were soon rewarded with views towards the sea over rolling hills in one direction and over the Weald in the other. Soon we passed the Rathfinny vineyards in a hollow below us. We were now heading towards the sea and above us were a number of paragliders. On a grassy bank over the meanders of the Cuckmere, we stopped for lunch, continuing to watch the paragliders throwing themselves off the side of a nearby hillside....
