Stonegate Circular Hike

The English weather has been glorious and I have so enjoyed hiking in the countryside. I joined the Kensington Chelsea Ramblers for the 10 mile Stonegate Circular, found in Time Out Country Walks Vol 2.

There were many "oast houses" which were formerly used to dry hops but are now often turned into homes. We also passed some harvested and unharvested hops fields. We ate an excellent lunch at the Lime Tree Tea Room in the cute village of Burwash. After lunch, we passed by Bateman's, the National Trust property which is the former home of Rudyard Kipling.
