SWC Free Walks 151/152, Lenham to Ashford.1/7/12

Another 'two-for-the-price-of-one' here as the walker combines two 'Greensand Way' walks into one of around 15.5 miles. Starting out from Lenham station, there's a fair bit of road walking initially, albeit on a quiet road, but the walker soon reaches Boughton Malherbe and The Greensand Way. This provides for some delightful walking through 'Darling Buds' scenery of orchards and meadows right through to Pluckley (duplicating some of the 'Pluckley Circular' walk) and beyond. The path is joined by The Stour Valley Walk shortly after Little Chart before arriving at the 'New Forestesque' Hothfield Common; there's even wild ponies to add to the resemblance. At Great Chart, the walker leaves The Greensand Way to follow The Stour Valley Walk through urban Ashford and on to its station. A lovely walk along one of this walker's favourite paths, The Greensand Way. The beginning and ending of the walk are quite hard on the joints, but the rest of the walk more than compensates!
