"Take the train nearest to 10am from Victoria Station to Borough Green & Wrotham"

This would be the 09.55, arriving 10.40, alternatively the 10.25, arriving 11.06.

Any votes? Should be a nice walk, weather permitting!

The Alpina Patisserie is permanently closed, and there is nothing beyond the High Street on the way to the station. Anyone needing a pitstop before their train will need to fill up at the top of the town.

n=10 met at Borough Green in w=brilliant sunshine and walked to Plaxtol through woodland and across fields, then to Fairlawne where a unanimous decision took us to Ightham Mote for lunch - picnickers joining those using the cafe at outside tables. n=6 then set off ahead, n=2 taking an alternative route round Knole Park leaving n=4 to enjoy tea and cake at the Malabar cafe in Sevenoaks before catching trains just before 16:00
