Walk Report

Visit to Bough Beech Reservoir, Saturday 11th November 2017
6 walkers, 19 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
The Weather forecast of heavy rain all day may have been a factor in the reduced numbers but apart from some light early drizzle and grey low clouds, the day was perfectly good for walking. The Eden Valley Walk was followed from Edenbridge, the promised castle, Hever, was shrouded in murk and gloom, the promised nature reserve seemed to be an imaginary one but fortunately Bough Beech Reservoir was still in evidence although looking quite short of water as we gazed on it from the eastern hillside. A 2-minute vigil at 11 and then an off piste section where those of us who had not been in the boy scouts were shown how to climb over a gate. The Greensand way lead us to lunch at the Community shop at Ide Hill with another view of the reservoir. The afternoon section took us along quiet country lanes and tracks via the NT area of Crockham Grange and the Vanguard way back to Edenbridge with skies brightening finally for a vivid sunset.
