The Day Walkers enjoy excellent Wealden views and wild flowers galore

The June Day walk was not only memorable for another 10 mile stroll, and excellent views of the lovely countryside east and south of Sevenoaks, but the wonderful array of wild flowers either side of the paths we walked – even in woodland. Substantial patches of bilberries (with fruit already well developed) and the common cow wheat edged a good deal of the path through woodland near Godden Green. The walk ably led by David Brace and Richard Sharman, took us through a golf course, through the lavender fields near Stone street, passed Ightham Mote and lunch at the Chaser Inn, Shipbourne. The walk back naturally enough included a good deal of ascent up the Greensand ridge and through Knole Park.

Our walking groups are certainly blessed with some fine walking at all points of the compass around Sevenoaks, but perhaps the best Wealden scenery can be taken in from the Greensand ridge around Carter’s Hill, Rook’s Hill and Wilmot Hill. There are a myriad of footpaths in the area so you do no need to clock up 10 miles to enjoy our fine countryside. OS Explorer Map 147
