Ightham and Bitchet Green: the Kentish Unpronounceables

Anyone who has been hanging around this group far too long than is good for them - me, principally - will be aware that we have done a walk beginning in Borough Green (where this walk will begin) and ending in Sevenoaks (where this walk will end) before: on November 29 2009. Never fear: I shall introduce some elegant variation so no one, least of all me, need feel cheated.

And it is a fine walk, too, passing not one, but two fine National Trust treasures in the form of the 14th century manor house of Ightham Mote (pictured) and the stately park and palace of Knole; plus woods, an Iron Age fort, the odd expansive view and, if we are lucky, some deer.

Total length is about 8 miles (13km). There will be the usual pub stop for lunch and at the end, natch, and as usual I shall get group rail tickets for us on the day when we are all assembled.

Lovely - see you there!

    As "penance" for raising our hopes with a 9th March original posting.. any chance of a 9th March walk? Not of course this one, alas, but a.n.other from your historic repetoire, or even - go on, dare you, a brand spanking new one? :)

    Other than the 3 pounds shown here, what do we pay for the tickets etc?

    January 28, 2013

    • Rich

      That is a complex question involving log rules and slide tables to work out, but the train tickets should be a tenner or less in total

      Sorry I meant are you charging anything other than 3 pounds for the trip. For example, other walks, the organisers are charging over 25 pounds claiming they are buying the tickets etc. So I am just checking that a) the individual is buying the ticket b) 3 pounds is all you are charging for this.
