  • Ashurst to East Grinstead. 13/6/12.
    amib, Jun-12

    Another glorious walk of 15.4 miles through the countryside of Kent and West Sussex. Almost immediately upon leaving the station, the walker is into the Wealden countryside and it's meadows, which were very sodden following heavy rain overnight. The early part of the walk follows The Sussex Border Path and the banks of The River Medway, which appear to have been breached. Lunch is taken at the village of Hartfield, home of Pooh Corner. Thereafter, it's down to Pooh Bridge for some throwing of sticks prior to a lovely forest section and some fantastic views! The final section, after Forest Row and into East Grinstead, is along the former rail line from East Grinstead to Groombridge, again, offering fine views. A very pleasant walk with a delightful variety of scenery. An excellent long walk for those longer days! (Unidentified birds were a Whitethroat and a Stonechat).
