The next Ightam – Greensand Way

It’s always a pleasure when long distance trails manage to include significant historical buildings.

After leaving Knole Park and gradually losing height the walk ran though neatly trimmed hedges, and the sound of a skylark lifted my spirits.

Despite my best efforts I couldn’t locate it in the vast blue skies.

Not to bother, half a mile later I was treated to the sight of a Goldcrest foraging at shoulder height, and then spotted two Grey Wagtails dipping in and out of a farmyard puddle.

Then voila! One of the most significant National Trust properties in the south east, Ightam Mote. Good on the National trust for keeping the grounds open even during Covid.

I would have loved a coffee, but the only drink available was the water in the moat. I pondered a previous (failed attempt to walk here on a wet winter’s day) and more exploration with Roz a few years back.
