Walk in the North Downs AONB as part of the AOG 2023

On the Saturday 29th July as part of the AOG 2023, we had a lovely sunny day and went to the south of Canterbury. There were 15 of us who did our walk from Hastingleigh church in the hamlet of Court Lodge.  We passed through woods, pastures and the edges of farmers fields.

Lunch was taken at a lovely view point just below Waltham church.  We then headed back towards the start point and had a liquid refill at The Timber Batts pub in the village of Bodsham.  It was about an 8 mile walk and I am glad I had my sicateurs to trim away some brambles on part of the route.  Every rucksack should have one on a walk.
