Darent ValleyPath

Last weekend - Saturday November 24th 2013 - did this beautiful walk in Kent, from Sevenoaks to Dartford - 18 miles. Somehow I had missed this London area walk! The sun shone as I walked near and beside the River Darent. En route passing several attrative scenic villages including Shoreham. The path also crosses the North Downs Way/Pilgrims Way and passes the gatehouse of Lullington Castle. I reached Dartford station as night fell.

On the following Saturday - November 3oth - I was back in Dartford to continue on and walked 24 miles to Greenwich.

September walk activities

30/31st. August  2013 - back in the Peak District! Just walked the 30 mile Cal-Der-Went Walk from Horbury Bridge, Wakefield to Ladybower Reservoir. A lovely walk in fine weather and no walkers! I first walked it in 1980 leading a party of eight. This is for a new book of the walk originally created by Geoffrey Carr in 1978. The book will be out in mid October 2013!

September 2013 - Busy walking the Grand Union Canal from Brentford/River Thames to Birmingham - 140 miles. Now reached Braunston - 90 miles - where the Oxford Canal branches off to Oxford and the Thames.

WEY NAVIGATION

Hi,
Did a lovely walk on Saturday - 13th. April 2013 - walking the whole length of the River Wey Navigation from Shepperton to Godmalding - 23 1/2 miles. All for a new challenge and canal walk book. Fine and sunny at first then rain and rather wet at the end....such is the joy of walking! A unique navigation full of unusual features.
Happy walking,
John
