eynsford to shoreham

On Saturday 23rd July - the first day, essentially, of our week's holiday together at home in London - we got the train out from Elephant and Castle to Eynsford, walked to Shoreham (along the river valley essentially), and got the train back from there. We had looked at the train timetables/routes to see where we could go directly from Elephant & Castle station and do a station to station walk, and that looked pleasant on the map; we could have done two stations, Eynsford to Otford, but I'm glad we went for the more leisurely option. It was a warm, sunny day, and quite a few folk were out walking. We didn't go into anywhere we could have paid to go in - Lullingstone Roman villa or Lullingstone Castle, most notably - but we did pop into a lavender farm shop and had a little wander and a tea room stop in Shoreham (we'd taken meal deal lunches which we'd eaten by the river).
