This walk starts from the old village of Lyng, where blotting- paper was 'invented' by accident. Parson Woodforde, the famous 19th Century diarist, bought a ream of paper from the papermill at Lyng. It was thought to be faulty, as it was extremely absorbent. However this led to the invention of blotting-paper. The route is along country lanes, bridleways and tree-lined tracks, passing through Elsing, another rural village. The church was built by Sir Hugh Hastings in the 15th Century and is certainly worth a visit. The Mermaid Inn is renowned for its good food and selection of real ales.
