Event description

Description

Wrotham to Halling - A climb up from the station and then our path takes us across the M20, hopefully we get the hustle and bustle of transportation out of the way early. though as this is the last section before we cross the Medway, industrial buildings do feature in some of our views. This is the downside of being a modern day Pilgrim.

On this route we are back following the North Downs Way for a while; discovering Wrotham Water which isn't a lake but a grassland area where endangered orchids and butterflies are found; walking through tunnels of trees and being able to catch sight of Trottiscliffe church which dates from around the time of Becket's murder and has many other interesting features I am happy to share with you.

There are other interesting buildings such as the tiny St Benedict's church which was used as a barn until being restored in the early 20th century and the former St Lawerence Chapel dating from the 12th century. This is now a series of dwellings called Chapel Houses. No surprise, this being the Pilgrim's Way that there are so many churches.

Our finishing point is Halling situated beside the River Medway itself and around 8.5 miles from our start.

To make sure we are in flow with the weather, whatever it may be, please wear layers as this allows you to take off or add as temperature varies. Bring a bottle of water and a snack or two e.g. some nuts or a protein bar in case you get the nibbles and also money for lunch and drinks.

Final details will be emailed out to those signing up at the latest the day before the walk.

We only have ten places available on this walk, so sign up as soon as you can!

With "Netwalking Women" we have weekend walks each month. We alternate the weekend days so that one month the walk is on a Saturday and then the next month on a Sunday.

It’s a day of investing in you, your health and wellbeing; of putting yourself first and as the opportunity arises, doing business in a different way! But you don’t have to be a business woman – you can be a woman who enjoys the company of other women, a woman who has chosen to take a day out from her job to look after herself, a mum who is child free for a time and choosing to spend her day in this way.

Walking is a wonderful way to get some exercise, to see a new part of a city of a corner of the countryside. It’s a wonderful way to socialise and to network too. When you’re walking you don’t need to keep eye contact and this can be very useful when challending and difficult conversations are taking place. In all my years of walking with women I have observed the most frivilous and lighthearted conversations one moment and the next a very deep and serious discussion the next. Walking allows all of that.

At the end of the day you’ll –

  • come away refreshed and with a clearer head having had a day in the fresh air

  • you’ll have met great women

  • you’ll have chatted, shared and learnt

  • you’ll have enjoyed coffee and lunch stops and perhaps an after walk drink

  • you’ll feel energised and exercised

  • you’ll be looking for the date of the next event..

This is time and space for you and it’s going to happen once a month.
