to continue on past the church we entered "Bearsted Green Space" which is a lovely green area with walks overlooking the North Downs and dropped down into a valley with a pond which continued into a river, unfortunately the sun disappeared. Will go back in the spring and try again.
We then climbed slowly up past Gore Cottage all on its' own as the sun started to reappear.
At the top of the hill you could see the cottage in all its splendor.
A bit further on was a great view of the North Downs.
As we dropped back onto the road we passed this white cottage which I have tried to photograph many times but always the sun is behind the place ans it clouded up again so with a little bit of post processing the was the best I could get. I will try a bit later on the year in the early morning, I think it will be worth the effort..
Back into the village is this sign.
and a very very old water pump.
A picture is worth a thousand words so this saves me typing.
Defiantly a place to go in the spring /summer.
Back to the car and home for a well earned cup of tea, shame the sun went in again.
Thanks for dropping by.
nite nite, Luv Mike and Sue.
