The Day Walking Group clock up another 10 mile walk under their belts
Knoleís walking groups are thriving and we now have 8 groups who walk a range of distances from 2-3 miles (Strollers) to the 10 miles (or more!) of the Day Walking Group. When groups become full we will create waiting lists and start new groups for this very popular activity when we have sufficient members to do so. Details of all the walking groups and their Group Contacts are in the new Handbook.
The Day Walking Groupís August walk, ably lead by Marion and Richard Green, covered some 10 miles of classic Wealden countryside around Oxen Hoath Park, the Fairlawn Estate near Plaxtol , and Dene Park near Shipbourne. The signs of the harvest underway were in evidence for much of the walk with many of the fields presenting easy walking. Fortunately a good deal of the route was through or on the edge of woodland which helped all cope with the humid conditions!
Another 10 mile walk planned for September walking from Shipbourne to Knole and back via Ightham. Another walk with excellent views across the Weald.
