Thursday – 28 JULY, 2016
BRING A PACKED LUNCH
13A Bus to Sandwich – arrives 9:08
Catch the bus at the Bus Station 8:25 or some minutes later at the Barton Court stop (outside the prison – JP will board the bus here).
£3:70 single, cheaper for a return or an explorer ticket and use it for the return journey from Northbourne.
Walk from the centre of Sandwich to the mouth of the Stour and then back a little way to find a suitable bathing spot.
BRING SWIMMING TRUNKS (might be ok without as the spot we have in mind is an unofficial nudist bathing area) – a towel might be useful.
After the dip we proceed along the coast by Sandwich Bay and Worth. Stop somewhere to eat our lunch.
At Groyne we take a footpath inland towards Little Downs Bridge and Blue Pigeon Farm
Along Pinnock Wall/Hacklinge/Adelaide/Finglesham/Northbourne, where there is a pub for those in need of a beer
From Northbourne there is one bus an hour ‘bus 14’:
13:45 – unlikely
14:46 – most likely (1hr 9 mins) – cost shows as £5:30 so the Explorer ticket looks a sensible investment if one does not have a bus pass.
15:58 – unlikely
