It’s not actually that far away. I made sure that the wind was behind me and flew there in two hours. I even tracked myself: https://www.strava.com/activities/1117071900
On the way – industry old and new, historic roads, Dartford Parish Church, cobbles and awkward one-way streets, Dickens’ country pad Gad’s Hill (where he died), his old parish church in Chalk. Followed by Rochester Cathedral, Castle and Chatham Docks. What’s not to like?
Clockwise from right: Chalk church nave, Rochester Castle, the Catalpa Tree outside Rochester Cathedral, the West front of Rochester Cathedral, Chalk church tower (which can be seen from miles away!)
