Time Out Walks, Book 1, Walk 36, Borough Green to Sevenoaks. 27/1/13.

The beginning of this 9.3 miler from Borough Green was familiar terrain, having done 'Walk 50' some months prior to this one. After Basted though, it's on to pastures new, literally, as some of the former orchards have now been cleared, it would seem, reflecting the demise of our fruit industry, unfortunately. Lunch is taken at Plaxtol church, rather than the suggested Ightham Moat, though there are picnic tables available there, as was recalled later. After Ightham, there's a bit of road walking prior to a stretch of muddy bridleway before some more woodland walking. This leads on to the grounds of Knole Park, with it's house and deer, before some more road walking back to the station. Another pleasant walk through some classic Kentish scenery, though the decline of the orchards, and it's associated wildlife (a favourite haunt of the now elusive Bullfinch) is a concern.
