Description

This walk is being organised by the Civil Engineers' Club, but any friends wishing to join the walk will be welcome.
Please note that PRE-REGISTRATION IS ESSENTIAL.
The meeting point is Bluebell Hill Picnic Site, Common Road, Chatham ME5 9RH (car park at the site)
Starting time - 10.00am

Walk Overview. - The walk is about 8.5 miles long, starting at Bluebell Hill 160m above sea level with views across the Medway Valley, over the low weald beyond Maidstone, down to river level (5m above sea level) and then back to the start via a circuitous route.

Route: - We start at the picnic area and pick up the North Downs Way before dropping down to cross over Pilgrims Way at Wouldham, into the village of Wouldham, past All Saints Church and then along the River Medway for about 1 mile before rising up to connect with the North Downs Way (Medway Valley Walk) with views across the Medway Valley to the west. We pass through Nashenden before ascending through Monk Wood to the Robin Hood Pub (refreshments available) which is about 3/4 mile from our start point.
The walk will end at about 3.00pm at the Robin Hood Pub. Allow 20 mins for a stroll back to the cars.

Lunch Break: We'll stop to have a picnic and rest our weary legs for about 45 mins at a nature reserve adjacent to the North Downs Way at Nashenden
Bring your own food and drink.
