2010 Night Walk

2010 Night Walk

“It could be a bit muddy in places” said our leader Kim W, so big boots, gaiters, and waterproof trousers were all in evidence at the meeting point, the Robin Hood pub in Icklesham.

However, under a brilliant moon, the group set off for a tour of the Brede Valley, where, apart from a few scattered puddles, the going underfoot was surprisingly dry. The near full moon almost obviated the need for head torches, and route finding did not involve too many “Where the h… are we?” moments, which has sometimes be the case on previous walks of this type.

We crossed the railway twice, by walking over the rails, and watched the lights of the Ashford International Flyer go past on a couple of occasions. Several streams and ditches were negotiated by bridges and eventually an uphill path found us at the rear of the car park to the Queens Head pub, where a well earned drink rounded off the evening.

Thanks to Kim for organising the route and all who turned up for what was a very pleasant walk.
