Starting at Adisham train station, head south and find the path that leads you towards Adisham Village. The church spire is visible in the far distance to the right. On reaching Adisham, take the road to the left heading towards Bloodden. Follow the road round and passed Cooting Farm. The footpath is picked up at the end of the road and heads towards Ileden. On reaching Ileden, you'll see the footpath heading across the farmer's field towards Barham. This will lead to a spectacular new footbridge which leads to Out Elmstead. On reaching the road head downhill to Kingston. Just before reaching the Nailbourne (small brook) you'll see a footpath leading to Barham. Take this and follow through to Barham Church. Take 10 > 15 mins to peruse inside the church as it is most beautiful inside. Leave the church from the south east and follow the road up hill towards Lydden. Follow the road to Gravel Castle and take the road to the left heading towards Winghamand the A2. Half way up is a footpath on the right, which will take you out to the garage along the A2. Cross the A2 and take the road leading towards Woolage. 200 yards before reaching Woolage is a road leading to Woolage Green. Take this and the pub is 50 yards along the road as you reach the green. After lunch head for Snowdon and catch the train back.
1. The cycle ride to the railway station had SP in stitches. His handlebars fell off. Had to ditch the bike at the station along with the shorts.
2. On reaching Dover Priory, was met by glorious sunshine and gardners watering all of the new flora in the newplantations. It was like stepping off a plane at an airport in a foreign country.
