We will be meeting at 11 am in the Leaves Green Common Car Park which is off Ashmore Lane., and leaving at 11.15 am.

{It is advisable to drive to this meet up using postcode BR2 6DR Ashmore Lane the car park is in Ashmore Lane.}

{If you are travelling by bus, you need to pick up the 320 bus outside Bromley South Station , trains run from Victoria to this station. The 320 bus runs every 12 minutes, but if you aim to get 10.35 am bus you will arrive at the Kings Arms pub Leaves Green at 10.54 where you need to get off.
You then cross the road and straight ahead is Leaves Green Crescent which you need to walk down,at the bottom is the car park.}

The walk, will take us along woodland paths, crosssing fields, going up hills, and going over stiles, and walking along a path at the northern end of Biggin Hill airfield.

it is advisable you wear adequate footwear, as some of the paths can get muddy.

Lunch will be in Down, so bring a packed lunch with you, I have booked tables in the Queens Head Pub for hot drinks only between 1-1.30 pm.

After lunch we will walk past Down House {image above} Down house was the home of Charles Darwin 1802-1882.

Writing to his sister.Darwin described the nature of the countryside surrounding his home. ''the charm of the place to me is that every field is intercepted by one or more footpaths. I never saw so many walks in any other county. It is surprising to think London is only 16 miles away''1842

Our walk ends at the Kings Arms pub c. 1700 {where a spitfire crash landed here in 1949 and demolished part of the pub} I have tables booked for 3 pm so we can have a drink.

With the 320 bus stop being opposite the pub, and going to Bromley South Station and the car park less than 5 minutes away.

COV'D 19 regulations will apply so please bring along a mask, and hand sanitiser with you.

If you have a knee problem or walk slow this walk is not for you.

Due to the small numbers I am allowed, please advise me at least 24 hrs before, so some one else can take your place.

Failure to do so may result in when you sign up for another of my walks, that you will be moved to not going.
