The Walk: A 3-mile walk from Chelsfield Village, where Greater London runs out and the Kent countryside begins. The route mainly takes in country lanes, tracks and footpaths.
There are four stiles en route - in quick succession on one stage. We will provide an alternative route, avoiding the stiles, for anyone who would otherwise avoid coming at all. However, this route will obviously miss out any clues on the part with stiles, so other team members will need to follow the standard route if they want to be sure of finding all the answers!
 
The Venue: The Five Bells Inn is a small village pub with a large outdoor area, catering for casual drinkers and those who wish to eat.
* A wide range of food dishes is available including daily specials and Sunday roasts. Full details on the venue website. Booking is advisable. Food is not served on Sunday evenings.
* The pub has limited off-street parking in the form of marked parking bays on Church Road; we recommend Quiz Walkers coming by car consider parking on the quiet surrounding streets - Church Road and Warren Road - out of courtesy for the pub and as there is normally plenty of room.

Directions: The Five Bells, Chelsfield Village, LB Bromley, BR6 7RE.
Leave M25 J4 and turn left onto motorway spur. At the following large roundabout, take fourth exit A224 north, towards Orpington.
After less than a mile, immediately after the start of the 40 mph limit, turn right into Church Road. The pub is then on the left after 200 yds.
If you miss the turning for Church Road, just take the next right, Warren Road. The pub is about 350 yds down this road.
 
Public Transport: The Five Bells is 1.1 miles from Chelsfield railway station, which has hourly trains from London and also from Orpington.

However, bus R3 operated by TfL runs from Orpington Station, which offers more frequent connections, and stops right outside the pub. Taxis are also available at Orpington station.

Orpington has frequent fast services from London Cannon Street and London Bridge on Sundays, destination : Hastings or Ramsgate.
Slower trains are also available from London Victoria or Brixton, destination: Orpington. Engineering works will affect this line on Sunday 3rd May so please check train times carefully.
If travelling via train from Surrey it is possible to travel via the Redhill - Tonbridge line, changing at Tonbridge. Depending on your departure time, travel via London Bridge may still be faster, due to train services only running hourly. For full details please consult www.nationalrail.co.uk.
Long-term engineering works mean no services currently operate to Orpington from London Charing Cross or London Waterloo East on Sundays.

Bus route R3 operates hourly on Sundays: departures at 1202, 1303 and 1400 from Orpington Station, each take 8-9 minutes to reach The Five Bells. Return services depart The Five Bells at 1713, 1811, 1911 and 2012. Fares are 1.50 single, payable via Oyster Pay As You Go or contactless credit/debit card only; cash is not accepted.
