Meet 1:45pm for 2pm outside St. Mary’s church High Halden
Today I have walked the route for our next Walk Church. Peter Deacon, a lifelong resident of High Halden, took me over the rolling hills of the High Weald around his village. As well as enjoying the views he gave a wonderful oral history of the landscape.
As with our previous walks, the distance will be about 4 miles, and a walking time of just under two hours. On the day, we will also have stops for readings, prayer and reflection, so it’s probably best to allow 3 hours to get back to High Halden – but it could be less.
The walk includes one high but stable stile, and one stile which is of normal height a but a bit unstable. We’ll be walking along Green Lane which can get churned up by four-wheel drive off-roaders. Unless it continues to stay very dry, I suggest you come in wellies: even in these dry conditions the track had some big puddles to cross. Final point, one of the field’s had livestock, both cattle and sheep.
Look forward to seeing you.
