Wye Circular walk

Out over the North Downs with breathtaking views to lunch in Sole Street. Back up over the Downs, then returning along the Great Stour river. Muddy in winter.

  • Wye Circular. 19/7/23
    amib, Jul-23

    An update of a walk last undertaken in January 2011, though not intentionally planned for today. A last minute alteration, on an initially cloudy day, resulted in a pleasant return to around 10 miles of Memory Lane. There was a bit of a south westerly breeze, particularly on the tops, but, unlike the last walk, not too much disruption with commentary.

    Great views are had from the Downs at 'The Crown', and several other places along the way to lunch in St Mary's churchyard, Crundale.

    Thereafter, using the GPX track to find the main track again, via some overgrown sections, and the walker is soon absorbing further great views, crossing fields, and the river Great Stour to return to the interesting church in Wye, and journey's end.

    A very pleasant walk, with decent surfaces underfoot, in a lovely area.

    P.S. Some minor wind interference at The Crown. The unidentified butterfly is now believed to be a male 'Meadow Brown'. The smell of damp soil etc after rain is, of course, 'petrichor'.

  • Wye Circular. 16/1/11.
    amib, Jan-11

    Around 11.5 miles of walking around the North Downs. The walker climbs up to the 'Crown Memorial' on the Wye Downs; there are some great views to be had here, as there are along the Crundale Downs shortly after. Lunch can be had in a 15th century pub at Sole Street before an afternoon of, predominantly, meadow walking (which can be muddy!).

    (This was a wind affected walk, so sound quality poor at times).
