Geo-Trips :: COVID-19 lockdown walks around Tunbridge Wells 9 - Toad Rocks

Tunbridge Wells

A walk from Tunbridge Wells, Mon, 13 Apr 2020 by N Chadwick

During the COVID-19 full lockdown of March - June of 2020, travel was highly restricted. One of the reasons for leaving the house was "daily exercise". These are a series of walks I did from home around Tunbridge Wells.
