Medway Towns Circuit, Saturday 7th March 2009
12 walkers, 19 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
A group of 12 enjoyed lovely weather and good company in our 19-mile circuit of the Medway towns. Starting early from Rochester station we strolled along the High Street admiring the varied architecture and the numerous reminders that this is a town strongly associated with Dickens. A brisk and breezy stretch along the river Medway and then a long slow climb onto the North Downs where we spent the next few hours passing several megalithic remains on the way; Kits Coty House and the White Stone. A late lunch but much enjoyed at the Bell in Bredhurst and then a quick return across a country park with lake and a final urban stretch through Chatham.
