This was a lovely 8 mile circular walk in Kent from the village of Lyminge along quiet country lanes and a good section of the Elham Valley Way.

We also decided to test Tedi’s new Mountain Warehouse walking boots in preparation for our walking holiday in a few weeks with HF Holidays.

We parked the car at Yewtree Cross in Lyminge and walked up Longage Hill with Sibton Park Cricket Club on our left hand side.

Just after Rhodes Minnis we walked right at the first footpath sign post just by the national speed limit signs to cross over a field.

We continued our walk crossing over White Horse Lane to then cross over another set of fields to the corner of Park Wood and House.

We then walked right by the fields edge to a distinct track that headed across the field, over a stile and in to Beveridge Bottom Wood, where we found loads of lovely Antirrhinum (Snapdragon) flowers.

We crossed over another 2 stiles to a lane where we walked right and left across another stile by the corner of the house to a wide grassy path all the way down to a white metal gate.

We continued our walk right up the wide gravel track in to woodlands where we then headed right to join a boundary field where we then walked left to the lane at Park Gate.

We then walked right down the quiet lane, keeping right at the fork, all the way down to the picturesque village on Elham.

We continued our walk left down St Marys Road following the signs for the Elham Valley Way, passed the church and right down Duck Street walking right at the signposts to keep on the Elham Valley Way.

We then walked across a series of open fields and crossing over 2 lanes and some lovely views of the Kent Downs before walking right over a footbridge to Canterbury Road where we then walked left back down to the car.

When we got home I checked Tedi’s feet to see if his new walking boots had rubbed him anywhere and there wasn’t a mark on them! If only I could find a pair of walking boots that comfortable…
