East Grinstead Church

Not so much a bus walk as a bus trip.

Take the 101 Arriva bus from the Medway towns to Maidstone, then the 7 (or 6) Arriva bus to Tunbridge Wells then the 291 Metro bus to East Grinstead. The journey time is just short of three hours. The Church was open and there are many nice pubs and restaurants.
