Messing in Medway

[9/6/3] Another catchup day combined with some much needed rejuvenation. My aim was to see those tombs in the medway group I hadn't yet seen and I was almost 100% successful. I started off at the White Horse Stone, finding it easily thanks to Ocifant's directions. Next up was The Coffin Stone, sadly in the middle of some ripening crops & unreachable until August (according to the friendly woman next door), so whilst in the immediate vicinity, I stopped off at The Countless Stones & Kit's Coty.

Next up was The Chestnuts, I gave the woman a ring & made an appointment for 2 hours later. Which left me with two hours to kill in Medway, so off to Coldrum I went. Now armed with binoculars for the first time at Coldrum, after about 20 minutes I pinpointed Kits Coty on the other side of the medway valley and then realised that Coldrum points straight at it. Which was nice.

So onto the last barrows of the day and a very educational talk at The Chestnuts. The lady was very nice & very well informed and we had a nice chat about the medway group, sources of stone etc. One note, please do give her a ring in advance, as its not a business and she does have other things to do with herself...
