Walk Report

Greensand Way Part 6, Sunday 22nd July 2012
7 walkers, 21 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
Beautiful hot and sunny day but only 7 walkers. I guess I couldn't compete with the Tour de France. We left Paddock Wood to walk to the River Medway, guided by a Staffordshire Terrier, who seemed to know the way better than the leader. The peace of the River Medway was shattered by an enormous Second World War re-enactment. After this eventful start we had a restful morning coffee at teapot island Yalding, where we joined the Greensand Way. One of our party spent the time on the walk productively counting and categorizing oast houses. There were lots!!! The two short pub stops were very welcome.
