Turning right into Chilmington Green Road (Stubbs cross) to join A2070 (kingsnorth).
A2070 to join A28 at Kennington (northeast of Ashford junc10 M20).
A28 towards Canterbury and ring road around city to Sturry.

Table Table Herne Bay,:cool: I could walk home from there:)
Thats what i was sort of thinking as starting point probably furthest for you so ending nearest seemed pretty fair m8 :thumbs: .....drop the GT at home then crawl home after food n drink :cheese:
Aggy has also said put him down for meeting us at Chilmington green n suggested a slightly different route which sounds alright, which we can decide on the day so no worries there :)
Might try n find a pub near to there for a bevvy break and to meet him there

Maybe catch u in the future during the summer then Andy :rolleyes:

Aggy is going to check out an alternative route towards Margate area which is also some nice driving roads but without the speed limits ;) :D
Have arranged with Aggy to meet him at the Bull Inn at Bethersden, time to be confirmed but 12-12.30 ish so any others who would like to meet the rest of us there plz do so.
Its a Sheps pub so hopefully can get a decent beer rather than the fizz :lol:

Hi there. We are planning to end up in Herne Bay at about 3pm and then having some food locally, but u are more than welcome to join us (the more the merrier :cool:) and it is understandable if you did shoot straight off instead of eating. The planned routes and roads should make for a very pleasant drive and blasts :thumbs:

I'm up for this - will be driving out from London, so see you at the start point for 11. Will be in a blue GTV. Might head straight back from Herne Bay, though, as it's a longish trip back.

Is it worth bringing walkie talkies, GPS etc., or will it be fairly easy to stick together?
