Description

Walking in Kent describes 40 circular day walks in the Garden of England. This guidebook includes routes ranging from 5 to 9 miles in west Kent and The Weald and north and east Kent. Encompassing woodland walks, clifftop paths and riverside rambles, there is something for everyone, from family strollers and determined ramblers. No specialised equipment or clothing is required.
The guide includes easy-to-follow route descriptions, 1:50K OS map extracts, background information and a route summary table. It also gives outlines of 11 longer walks in the Kent area, including the Darent Valley Way, the Saxon Shore Way and the North Downs Way National Trail.
Kent is a wonderfully diverse county and these walks explore every corner, from the estuaries of the Medway and to the vast sweep of the Weald with its historic villages, orchards, hop gardens and vineyards. But best of all, there is the surprise of long unhindered views and big skies over Kent, where Britain begins.
