Walk Report

Darenth Valley Summer Explorer, Sunday 30th July 2017
24 walkers, 20.5 miles - leader Lonica Vanclay
The 22 miles reduced to 20.5 somehow and the 24 of us before lunch reduced to 22 after but the rain held off and the mud wasn't too bad given the heavy rain the night before. It was green and lush in the country, the corn was high (above our heads in fact) and the lavender was being harvested. Aah.... the joys of an English summer country walk.
