On a fine, warm September day, Janet Goodchild and Elizabeth Bellchamber led eleven members of the 6 – 8 mile rambling group on a lovely circular walk starting at Yalding. We set off along the River Medway, through fields and woods, passing through a deer park, followed shortly by a large picturesque mansion out in the countryside. We continued past an architecturally interesting archway, and onward towards Nettlestead Church where we ate our picnic lunches. We then followed the towpath along the river back to Yalding. Plenty of wonderful scenery along the way.
