Sunday Walk: Wandering from Wadhurst

Wadhurst Circular or Wadhurst to Stonegate Book 2 Walk 18
19 km 11.8 miles / 16 km 9.9 ml/ 10 km 6.2 ml
Difficulty 4 out of 10
South through the unspoilt countryside of the High Weald to a pub in Mayfield, a village with many attractive old buildings and a listed 15th century church. You pass through Wadhurst Park, home to a herd of deer, some of which are almost white.
For a shorter option, with no tea stop, follow the Stonegate ending from point 7.
(or... even shorter, the 6.2 mile circular that cuts out Mayfield).
Trains:
09:55 Hastings train from Charing Cross (London Bridge 10:03) arrive 11:01
Trains return from Wadhurst xx:29 and xx:00
Trains return from Stonegate xx:23
Get a return to Wadhurst for the circular. You need a return to Stonegate, the further stop, to finish there.
Lunch:
The Rose and Crown in Mayfield 01435 872200. Phoning advised.
Alternatively The Middle House 400m east up Fletching Street into the village.
Tea: 
Two options in Wadhurst. You encounter the White Hart first on a corner to your right. If you turn right along that road, the High Street, you soon reach The Greyhound 01892 783224. This is said to be better for tea because it is served in pots. It's a bit of a walk to the station from Wadhurst. Allow 40-50 mins for the recommended route, 25-35 along the road.
Stonegate is devoid of facilities, just sheep, a few cows and a station (though a farm shop on Station Road sells cold drinks, if it's open).
Directions:  Book 2 or here.
T=2.18
