TQ4556 : Snow on the North Downs Way

taken 8 years ago, near to Horns Green, Bromley, Great Britain

Snow on the North Downs Way
Snow on the North Downs Way
The long distance path heads from Hogstrough Hill, towards Westerham Hill. It is following a field edge on the ridge of the downs. These bits of snow are the (hopefully!!) last remainders (in the South!!) of the heavy snow that has paralysed the UK for the last three weeks. The snow has stayed on the colder higher spots in the South East, the rest has melted over the weekend.
North Downs Way
A long distance path in southern England. It runs from Farnham to Dover, past Godalming, Guildford, Dorking, Merstham, Otford and Rochester, along the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Kent Downs AONB. East of Boughton Lees, the path splits in two, the northern section running via Canterbury and the southern via Wye. The two sections of the path reunite at Dover. The northern route is 211 km long, and the southern route 201 km, the total length of the North Downs Way being 246 km.
The pathway is mixed in that it varies throughout its length from footpath status to bridleway, byway and road. Some 19% of the Way follows roads, though 75% of those are minor lanes. It is marked by a acorn. See TQ6561 : Crossover in Long Distance pathways.
