Walk Report

An excuse to test parts of a potential 100 route The last hurrah before lockdown had 5, the hurrah we're back had 5 after a last minute Covid track & trace withdrawal. From Goathurst Common the “little“ dipper between Ide Hill & Toys Hill was met with fresh legs rather than 80-90 miles fatigue if 100eers come this way. Collecting No5, who'd left it too late to leave home to arrive in time, at Toys Hill village hall it was NT paths rather than PRoWs across and beyond Toys Hill hill heading north. A drinks pause at Brasted church brought on the drizzle. The optimistic men were proved wrong by the waterproof donning ladies as it lasted and heavied for an hour and more before easing and brightening through the afternoon. A climb up the North Downs scarp could be called sadistic with 3 miles to go and today the top field exit proved elusive in long grass. Lunch on the grass in front of potential HQ Darwin Academy was a wet bottom avoiding standing affair. Turnings invented and missed added a bit back off the Downs with tarmac hard to avoid but rewarded by welcome tea & coffee at the welcoming White Horse in Sundridge. The other 100 route was coincidentally reversed a while then nearly back at the start a turn east before regaining the Greensand Way west to east. At Sevenoaks Weald church a turn for home followed a detour into the village for their hall before more Greensand Way led west to cars.
