On a most beautiful clear bright Autumn morning, last year, we set of for a walk in the woods and fields around Fordwich & Canterbury. It was warm enough (just) to wear shorts, however not the wisest of choices as Terry and Karen had us walking through the undergrowth with brambles & nettles waiting to catch us, as we passed by.
We stopped to fill our tubs full of wild blackberries eating as many as we could too.. blue stained hands to prove it. We also found trees laden with apples and damsons.
We stopped for our picnic lunch on the edge of a large orchard, the trees weigh down with ripening pears.
Finishing back in Fordwich for a quick drink at the George & Dragon.
