WALKS DIARY 2018

PLEASE NOTE: We always welcome friends and family but please note only Darent Cray Association members are covered by National Trust lnsurance. Anyone not covered will walk at their own risk. All routes are walked in advance to ensure that we walk as safely as possible.

We appreciate a minimum donation of £2 per person. Your generosity will go towards the Trust's Neptune Coastline Campaign.


PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU WEAR SUITABLE PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AND FOOTWEAR ON ALL WALKS. WE ALSO RECOMMEND THAT YOU CARRY AN ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF DRINKING WATER.

Please Note:  

All walkers planning to join one of these walks should contact Rosemary or Geoff to confirm their probable attendance at least 3 days in advance of a walk. 

This will ensure that walkers can be contacted in order to advise them of walk cancellation e.g. in the event of bad weather or insufficient support to make the walk viable.

Tuesday 19th June                             A walk through London’s Docklands                      (EASY WALK)    

Start Time 11:00 am                                                      Walk Distance: Approx 3.5 miles

Rosemary and Geoff will lead this walk which covers much of what used to be known as the Surrey Commercial Docks, famous for its role in importing timber. Much of this area has been redeveloped. It retains some of the area’s industrial heritage together with some unexpected wilderness areas, an ecological park and a network of river and waterside paths.

We will meet in the Library outside Canada Water tube station (look for a building which is wider at the top than the bottom and covered with a dirty gold coloured metal cladding). Pre walk refreshments and toilets are available in the library cafe. There will also be an opportunity to stop for a pub lunch on the way round.


Sunday 29th July    A walk From Lullingstone Country Park Visitors Centre       (EASY WALK with some hills)       

Start time: 10.30 am                                                                                                Distance:  4.0 miles

Rosemary & Geoff will be leading this walk starting from the car park at the Visitors Centre (note there is a parking fee of £2.50 at weekends). The park is well signed off of the A225 a mile south of Eynsford and then down Castle lane for 0.5m. 

We start our walk beside the river Darent to Lullingstone Castle taking a circular route through the Country Park and its woodlands back to the visitor centre. The terrain is undulating with one uphill section early on in the walk.

There are toilets and refreshments before & after the walk at the Visitors Centre.
