Walking in Kent
Time Out Country Walk No: Not sure, but it was Borough Green to Sevenoaks.
Time: 6 and a bit hours, but difficulty 4. So no sore feet.
A lovely walk on a Sunday afternoon in a green portion of Kent; really hard to believe it's half an hours train ride out of London. Can't look back on it with much, or indeed any, pleasure; my friend T rang as we had lunch and told me his Dad had died. A grim week had begun. Went to Manchester for the funeral on the Tuesday, marvelled at the courage of those closest left behind. A remarkable man has left us.
