Today we walked from the Royal British Legion Village in Aylesford to Horsmonden.

We had a lovely send off at the RBLV, which included a wreath laying and a brief introduction of ourselves to the community. 

Easy day of walking with beautiful weather. More English countryside with windy roads and a few lazy villages throughout. 

Ended our day at the local free house in Horsmonden, where we had tea and cakes, curry, and a question and answer session. Many people from the town came out to see us and it was one of the best welcome receptions yet. 

Four more days to the end.
