CANCELLED – Eynsford to Farningham (and back again!) Social

July 16, 2022 all-day


The Darenth Valley contains arguably the most attractive scenery to be found within easy reach of Bromley.   Today’s social offers the chance to enjoy a short walk in the valley, as well as visits to 5 country pubs.   Total walking distance is about 4-5 kilometres and should be fine for most able-bodied people.   The return walk is mainly uphill though, including the final section back to Eynsford station.   Also very warm weather is expected this weekend, so walkers should consider bringing water, suncream and appropriate headgear.

Our plan is to meet at Bromley South Station at 11.40 to catch the 11:53 Thameslink train to Eynsford.    The same train calls at several stations in our borough – namely Beckenham Hill, Ravensbourne, Shortlands, Bickley and St Mary Cray.    The final destination of the train is Sevenoaks.   Trains run at 30-minute intervals on this line, so getting back to Bromley isn’t a problem.

The day’s itinerary is as follows:-

12:30 – Five Bells, High Street, DA4 0AB
13:30 – Walk to Farningham.
14:00 – Pied Bull, High Street, DA4 0DG
14:45 – Lion Hotel, High Street, DA4 0DP
15:45 – Chequers, 87 High Street, DA4 0DT
16:30 – Walk back to Eynsford.
17:00 – Malt Shovel, Station Road DA4 0ER
