Walk Report

Knockholt to Slade Green, Saturday 13th June 2015
14 walkers, 18 miles - leader Peter Buchwald

Butterflies....

A lonely horse gambolled up to us
Enjoying our company at a stile
A farmer took a break from her work
To show us the overgrown path we'd missed.

We crossed the rolling verdant land
To a large country inn on a green
The babbling river flowing happily by
In the rolling grassy Kentish downlands.

We strolled on to Crayford's marshes
Wild flowers yellow and purple at our feet
Flittering butterflies around us red and black
An old moated castle slowly sinking away.
