Spice up your Valentine's Day with a trip to Tunbridge Wells!

Dear London hikers


Well I reckon that romantic candle-lit dinners for two are a bit over-rated and and the only real way to celebrate Valentine's Day is with a 20 mile yomp around the Sussex border.

So if you think the same, why not cram the candles and dinner into your rucksack and head over to Wadhurst this Saturday to join Jane for her exploration of the Kent / Sussex hinterland?

All the details are reproduced at the bottom of this note - please note especially that, as shown below, the train times have changed compared to Strider.


And while I've got your attention, please don't forget that it's the London LDWA AGM in a couple of weeks, on Tuesday 24 February.   If you'd like to come along, please let Douglas know by email to london@ldwa.org.uk, if you haven't already done so.


So get the bag packed and prepare for a great weekend!

Happy hiking
