2: B-tuf: 16: A Bird in the Hand

(Or Plop the Owl who was afraid of the Dark)

Two problems have been encountered with the early part of this route.

1) “Penshurst Gardens” should read “Fenshurst Gardens”.

2) The instruction “In the field, turn right and follow the line of a hedge to a stile into a tree-tunnel track.” has proved confusing, due to an unfortunate page break and the insertion of the comment about Ridings Wood and the Wild Country “over to the right.” This led my informant to go through a gap in the hedge – which to be fair is more like a line of bushes – and led him into an unfortunate confrontation with a security guard in the old hospital site.

To avoid this – When you get over the stile into the field, mentioned at the bottom of page 153, turn right immedately and follow the line of what used to be a hedge to the stile into the tree tunnel. (My informant thought this was more like straight on.) The important thing is not to cross the line of the old hedge.
