Knockholt Pound & Chevening House walk

Off message but went on lovely 5 mile circular walk last Sunday with Gill in North Downs, Kent. Great views marred a bit by road noise from M25 for part of the route. Not a tough walk at all for such marvellous prospectives.

It is around 50 minutes by car from Newham. There is railway station about 2 miles away so you could extend walk if using public transport. 

I think I saw a Battle of Britain Flight Spitfire flying overhead but not sure and I was too slow to take a proper photo.  

Chevening House, dominates the skyline for much of this walk and is the marvellous "grace and favour" home for the current Foreign Secretary. I can think of better uses. Just saying...

The village pub, Three Horseshoes, was shut but stopped off at nearby village pub, The Bulls Head, for a beer, which was very nice and the food looked excellent.
