Ashenbank Wood, Kent

And again we went for a short walk today morning to Ashenbank Wood just next to the Cobham Hall in Nort-West Kent. It is being looked after by the Woodland Trust [wt-woods.org.uk].
Quoting from KCC web site [kent.gov.uk]:

“Located in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ashenbank Wood comprises 30 hectares of ancient woodland.

As well as the dense areas of trees, the site has some open grass areas and ponds.

During the Second World War an RAF camp was constructed in the wood. Some original structures still remain from this period.

The site is also home to a bronze age barrow. This item is of national importance and has been classified as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

* Paths are largely suitable for electric scooters
* The nearest train station is Sole Street (2 miles).”



Täna hommikul võtsime ette kiire jalutuskäigu Ashenbank metsas, mis asub meie kodust umbes viie miili kaugusel. Sealsamas kõrval asub ka Cobham Hall [cobhamhall.com], milles tegutseb tütarlaste kool.

Probably very old…

Nähtavasti on see isend siin juba ammu olnud…

Vot selline kooremuster oli seal.
