Kent Towns

The Kent Downs is known as a great walking destination! You’ll find yourself spoilt for choice – whether you want a long distance hike or a gentle stroll around our downland villages.
One of the most renowned features of the Kent Downs is its chalk grassland, supporting many species of flora and fauna. A walk in May and June can be a feast for the senses; tantalising smells of wild herbs, a colourful array of orchids and other wild flowers and the sound of insects that rely on the plants for their survival.

Walking in Kent
Particularly well served by the rail network, the Kent Downs are easy to reach by train, giving direct access to great walking routes. Many places are accessible in around one hour from London.
"Many of Kent's Regional and Recreation routes follow valleys which pass through historic towns and villages and allow the walker to become intimately acquainted with the landscape of a particular area. With a wide range of walks for all ages and abilities, what better way to relax with a little gentle exercise."

Parking Appledore village car park
Public toilets By recreation ground
1 Park in the village car park or on the main street. Walk south down Appledore's main street and past the Church of St Peter and St Paul. Turn left just before the bridge, go through a couple of gates and over a stile and follow the footpath all the way along the Royal Military Canal. It's lovely easy walking on a grassy track and you don't have to worry about where to put your feet.
2 The route eventually takes you up to a road, where you turn left, go past Higham Farm and then go over a stile on the right. Now follow the footpath over the field, heading under the line of pylons and up towards the church tower that peers down on you. Go over another two stiles before coming into the graveyard of Kenardington church. Look behind you for great views over the fields and marshes. Keep to the left-hand side of the graveyard and go over a stile to join the Saxon Shore Way that you now follow all the way to Appledore.
3 Keep to the field edge, hop over another stile and join the road. In a few paces you'll see a broken down stile on the right-hand side, which takes you diagonally across the fields, over two more stiles and down into a sunken lane. Go over another stile and walk across the field, maintaining direction to reach the road. Cross over, pop over another stile and walk diagonally across the field, over a small bridge, then ahead over more fields. When you reach a stile on your right, don't cross it, but bear left and follow the Saxon Shore Way as it takes you on to the mound, a Bronze-Age burial site. From here you can see the chimneys of Hornes Place. The house that originally stood here belonged to the local squire and was burned down during the Peasants' Revolt in 1381, when Wat Tyler's men marched through Appledore.
4 Go downhill, over a stile and a small bridge, then bear left diagonally and go through a gate. Continue to the recreation ground and the main road, where you turn left and walk back into Appledore.

Although it's about 9 miles (14.5km) from the sea today, Appledore was a busy port until the 14th century, when the sea started to retreat following extensive reclamation of Romney Marshes. It was a busy trading centre for luxury products such as wool, silk, wine and lace, and was also the hub of a lucrative ship-building industry. The main street is wide and airy, it reeks of past prosperity and is lined with the homes of former merchants and ship owners.
The Royal Military Canal is a reminder that Appledore was once strategically important. The Vikings brought 250 longships here and made the area a base for launching assaults on the surrounding countryside. During the Hundred Years War, French troops raided the coastline, sacked the village and burned down the church. An even greater threat came in the early 19th century, when it looked as if Napoleon's army might invade. Martello Towers were built along the coast and, as a further line of defence, a canal was dug between Rye and Hythe. The idea was that neither cavalry nor artillery would be able to cross the canal, so disrupting any large scale assaults. A military road was built next to the canal, behind an earthen parapet, allowing troops to move about while being protected from enemy fire. Sluice gates were also added so that, if necessary, Romney Marsh could be flooded.
The canal was never used against Napoleon, as by the time it was completed the threat of invasion had receded. It was, however, used by barges for many years and during the Second World War, when the country was once more threatened by invasion, was fortified again. You can still see pill boxes at various points along your route.
As you walk along the canal you will get great views of the marshes that stretch into the distance on your right-hand side. They are grazed by Romney Marsh sheep, the oldest of all British breeds of sheep. They have rather stocky looking bodies and short legs and are hardy animals, ideally adapted to living in damp conditions. During the summer, sheep farmers like the water level in the ditches to be high, so that their animals cannot stray from the fields, while arable farmers require water to irrigate their crops. So the sluice gates on the canal are used to raise the water level and let water drain out into the ditches.

1 From the churchyard, follow the footpath, then take the right-hand path over a stile and down a track. After another stile, go straight ahead up to some trees. Nip over a stile and cross the road.
2 Climb the fence by a metal gate and walk through a salvage yard. At a fork, keep to the right and take the narrow track through the trees. Cross a stile, walk straight ahead along the field edge, then go left at a marker post. At the bottom of the field bear right, then immediately left, and walk ahead between two ponds. Go through the gate and cross the farmyard.
3 Follow a tarmac drive to the road (private planes land here and you'll pass a sign saying 'danger - stop, look aircraft'). Turn left and continue for ¾ mile (1.2km) to the main road and turn right. Turn left at the electricity sub-station. Reach a field and walk diagonally left towards the first lone tree, then continue to the hedge.
4 Cross a bridge, go through some scrub and over a stile. Turn left at the high wire fence, then go through the high metal gate - you might have to push very hard to get it open. Another gate brings you into a slimy poultry yard. Walk around the edge of the pond and then go through another gate. Cross two more stiles, and then turn left in pasture where you go right, up the track.
5 Walk to a junction, turn right and follow the road as it bears right then, on the corner, clamber over a broken down stile and follow a public footpath to the left. Walk diagonally across two fields to Wissenden Corner.

7 At another marker, cross a tiny bridge and two stiles, then walk straight across the field. Reach another bridge and stile where the track goes at a diagonal. Cross a bridge in the wood and then take the distinct track on the left. At another small bridge and stile you emerge from the wood and cross pasture, then head towards the bottom left-hand corner of a field. Cross another field to a line of trees and continue to a tarmac path. Continue ahead over two more stiles to return to the churchyard.

Biddenden
Biddenden Pub walk 2 miles
Walks: Biddenden's Red Lion
Distance 2 miles. The walk is completely off-road and fairly flat and goes through countryside to the north and west of the large village church.
The walk starts and finishes at The Red Lion inn on the A262.
1. From the pub go towards the church follow the path that goes to the right of the church. Cross the churchyard and take the path as it goes between the fences. Cross the patch of grass and trees, and continue on the concrete path ahead.
2. Follow the meadow's right edge that of the next three fields. Go past the large pond and over a stile at the end of the field. Bear slightly left towards the far end. Go through a gap in the hedge at the far end of the field, over a plank bridge and along the right edge of another field until you get to another pond.
3. Turn left sharply at the end of the pond and walk along the top end of the next field. Keep to the right as you cross the next two fields.
4. Turn sharp left again at the marker post and go through a gap in the tall hedge at the end of the meadow. Cross the stream and go diagonally across a large field, aiming for the roofs of the houses in the distance.
5. Once you have crossed the field go over a stile on the left and along the right edge of a field for about 50 yards. Immediately after a small pond go over a stile and diagonally across a small field aiming for the church.
6. After the stile, turn left for a few yards and walk between metal barriers and along the road between the houses. At the end of the road turn left and you will end up back at the churchyard.

Start/finish TQ 954494
Dog friendliness Generally good, watch out for horses
Parking Off High Street and off Station Road, Charing
Public toilets Old Ashford Road in centre of village
1 From the church in the centre of Charing village, walk to the High Street, cross over and go up School Road. At the roundabout turn right on to the A252 and then cross the road to follow a public footpath that leads off to the left. Cross a stile and then walk diagonally across a field and through two metal gates. There are two tracks to choose from here - strike out along the left-hand track and make your way up to the trees.
2 At the hedge, climb a fence, then turn right and walk along the Pilgrims' Way. It's very easy going now, this is a popular route for dog walkers and horse riders. Continue to reach the house called Twyford. Where the track ahead forks, go to the right and come on to the A252. Cross over, turn left, walk about 50yds (46m), then turn down the Pilgrims' Way on the right-hand side. Pass a tarmac track on the right and continue to a large tree.
3 The Pilgrims' Way now continues ahead, eventually bringing you to Eastwell, the burial place of Richard Plantaganet, illegitimate son of Richard III. Unless you want to walk to Eastwell your route now takes you to the right, down a bridleway. This is an immensely atmospheric lane, with a thick canopy of trees and so old that it has sunk in the middle. Take care if it's wet, as the track is chalky and can get very slippery. At the tarmac road turn right.
4 Just past Pett Farm go over the stile by the green gate on the left-hand side. You soon see Charing church peeping through the trees. Walk towards the church, crossing another stile. At the bottom of the field turn right through a gap in a thick hedge, that brings you out to a small hut. Walk around the field, along a flagstone path and past a children's play area. Turn right up the fenced path and go into the churchyard.
Charing walks 5.5 or 6.4 miles

Chartham
Chartham walk 3.5, 4 or 6.5 miles
Chartham walk 11 miles
Denge Wood Loop
Start point (TR12270 55603) Car Park Thanington to Chartham Road.
From car park, head in a southerly direction along wide track, at top of hill change to footpath running alongside field edge. At road, cross to lane and head down hill, at bend take the footpath through fields.
At Garlinge Green - follow lane past farm into woods, follow woods path until it splits, take the right path.
Stick to this lane through a clearing and back into the woods as far as the edge of the wood, there take the left fork headed south again. Follow marke trail as far as Sole Street - good pub here if ready for a break!
Turn left at the cross-roads and carry on until you reach a wide track on your right, take this track as far as Garlinge Green, cross the road and keep straight on past Kenfield Hall. At the split in the road, take the right fork, cross the road and take the marked footpath through the trees up the hill. Follow the marked path to the wood edge and follow the marked path back to the carpark. 11 Miles.

Hamstreet walks 6 walks, 2 - 7 miles
The village of Hamstreet is surrounded by public woodland including Hamstreet woods, an area of special scientific interest renowned for the presence of wild service trees and nightingales. The Weald of Kent was once covered with woodland of this kind and the suffix 'den' on many local place-names indicates a clearing in the forest.
The first two walks in this guide follow the Saxon Shore Way and Greensand Way footpaths through the woods and return along the banks of the area's other striking feature - the Royal Military Canal. Ramblers are free to roam any footpaths within the nature reserve.
Hamstreet is a great base for walkers because of its railway station, shops, restaurant and five pubs within two and half miles of the main crossroads. Details of these appear on the right hand side of the page.

Ruckinge Loop (5 miles)

A variation on this route was featured in the 'Top 50 best summer walks in Britain' in the Independent newspaper.
1 Head towards Hythe along the one-way street from the village crossroads and take the second turning left onto Bourne Lane. At the end of the lane, bear right, through the gate into Hamstreet Woods.
2 As you enter the woods the Saxon Shore Way bridges a stream and bears sharp left. Then after around a hundred yards it forks right. Stay on the grassy right-hand-side, as the surfaced path on the left eventually deviates. The trail runs right through the middle of the woods, gradually climbing for around a mile until it reaches a gate at the other end. Go through the gate and continue up to the T-junction with Gill Lane byway.
3 Bear left and climb out of the woods. The Saxon Shore Way then exits right along a farm track, while we continue ahead on Gill Lane. 300 yards later you will reach a junction; turn right taking great care as this lane is narrow and bounded by hedges.
4 Several hundred yards later, you will reach another junction with a gravel surfaced byway leading straight ahead. Follow this all the way into the woods, around the sharp bend and on for around a mile descending to meet the B2067 near Herne Farm.
5 Turn right, walking westward along the road for a quarter of a mile to Ruckinge village. This is another settlement with smuggling connections; it is believed that the notorious Ransley brothers were hanged at Penenden Heath, Maidstone and buried in Ruckinge churchyard (St Mary Magdalene).
6 Turning left at the T-junction just after the Blue Anchor pub; you will pass the chapel and cross the bridge over the Royal Military Canal. It is now just a simple matter of following the canal path back to Hamstreet.
7 When you reach Hamstreet Bridge around a mile and a half later, turn right, and follow the road past the garden centre (which includes a cafe) back into the village. Just after passing Mountain Farm on your right, there is a footpath that runs behind the hedge on your left, parallel to the road as you enter the village - a quiet alternative across Pound Leas recreation ground to the car park in The Street.

Bilsington Loop (7 miles)

1 Follow the route of the ‘Ruckinge Loop’ as far as Herne Farm, Ruckinge. (If you wish to try an alternative route into the woods, head south from the crossroads and turn left down the alleyway opposite the church. Follow this over the little bridge, past the bowling green and straight over the road to pass the duck-pond and climb through a housing estate. Turn left when you reach a T-junction of estate roads, and when the road reaches a dead end, turn left into the woods. This narrow path curves right and soon becomes wider and dead straight (Main Ride). Follow this all the way to the end where it meets Gill Farm Track. Turn right to continue the Ruckinge Loop up to the gate at the top of the woods and on as instructed above).
2 When you reach Herne Farm, turn left along the B2067 and walk very carefully until the sharp left-hand bend. Take the public footpath straight ahead, across the field towards a house at the top of the hill. Keep to the right hand side of the house and descend the other side, heading for the corner next to the road. Cross the stile into the next field and continue along the left hand side. You will come out onto the road beside a little bridge.
3 Turn right, following the road up the hill into Bilsington village, taking great care. Here, the pub is the White Horse and the church is of St Peter and St Paul. The obelisk is a monument, built in 1835, to honour a local landowner, Sir Richard Cosway, who was famed for his generosity towards his workers but tragically died in a coaching accident. Bilsington was voted the fifth best postcode area in the UK to live in in 2006.
4 Turning right at the crossroads, follow the lane down the hill past the cricket field on your right. You will notice a footpath parallel to the road along the field edge, which will bring you back out onto the lane at the bottom.
5 It is now a simple matter of following the canal path for two and a half miles back to Hamstreet.It is now a simple matter of turning right to follow the canal path for two and a half miles back to Hamstreet. This runs along the north bank as far as Ruckinge (where the Blue Anchor can be found a few hundred yards north up the lane) and the south bank beyond.
6 When you reach Hamstreet Bridge, turn right, and follow the road past the garden centre back into the village. Just after passing Mountain Farm on your right, there is a footpath that runs behind the hedge on your left, parallel to the road as you enter the village - a quiet alternative across Pound Leas recreation ground to the car park in The Street.

Orlestone Loop (2 miles)

1 Head towards Hythe along the one-way street from the village crossroads and take the second turning left onto Bourne Lane’. At the end of the lane, cross the stile and continue straight ahead, with the edge of the field on your left. You will soon reach the railway embankment, climb this and cross the line carefully. This Ashford to Hastings line is one of only two remaining diesel lines in the provincial South-east.
2 Descend the embankment to the next field, and follow the footpath diagonally across, roughly northward. You will climb to pass underneath the bypass, opened in 1994. (If ever fields further on are blocked, there is a path to your left here which passes through woodland and along the left edge of a field to reach the old Ashford Road.) Bear right to continue along left hand side of the next field until a track bears left into Orlestone. There will be a house to your right and tennis courts to your left. Next you will pass a pond behind St Mary's Church where the path continues ahead across the field.
3 You will soon reach a crossroads of footpaths. Turn sharp left at the post to take the path which is slightly diagonal across the field to reach the lane. Our walk continues straight across but those wishing to explore the church can detour left at this point. This hamlet with its church of St Mary’s was all Hamstreet originally was. When the flatlands of Romney Marsh were drained, the population decamped to the more southerly location, then known merely as ‘Ham’. It was the coming of the railway in 1851 that ultimately led to the growth of this village.
4 Our footpath crosses a lawn and passes to the left of a pond to descend across the next field to the old main road. Turn left and return to the village centre down the hill on the pavement, passing the school and railway station.

Warehorne Loop (3 miles)

1 Head towards Tenterden along the B2067 from the village crossroads. After passing beneath the arched railway bridge and the modern bypass bridge, climb the steps on your left. A short distance along this stony path, there is a stile to your right. Climb over and follow the Saxon Shore Way in a straight line towards the church tower across the fields eventually descending into a dip and gently climbing again. Having walked along the right hand edge of the final field, you will come to a stile surrounded by bushes. Cross this and continue along the drive out to the lane. Turn right.
2 The sixteenth century Woolpack inn is connected to the church of St Matthew by an underground tunnel. This was built and used by smugglers, a common practice in this area in centuries past.
3 Take the path, left, into the churchyard and walk around the west side of the building. If you imagine a straight line right through the church bearing slightly left, this is roughly the route of the footpath down to the lane through the bushes to the left of the house at the bottom. When you emerge, cross the level crossing and continue down to the Royal Military Canal. This was built as a line of defence against a feared invasion from Napoleon. A footpath follows its banks for the full 28 miles from Cliff End (near Hastings) to Seabrook (near Folkestone).
4 To return to Hamstreet, cross the stile on your left before the bridge and turn left again take the footpath that heads due northeast across the fields towards a static lorry-back. Pass to the left of this and through the swing-gate on your right to continue northeast. Look carefully for the bridges across the dykes. The telegraph pole in the middle of the distant sloping field is a good reference point to check you are on course. You will eventually reach the Hamstreet bypass; cross this and continue, descending to the village, passing a farmhouse on your left and bridging a dyke to follow a short lane out to the High Street.

Kenardington Loop (5 miles)

1 Use the previous route to get to Warehorne, but continue along the lane past the church and Woolpack Inn. A drive to a farm bears left, and almost immediately the Saxon Shore Way exits right, across the field. As you descend across the middle of the sloping second field, head for the right hand side of the row of trees at the end. Pass through the swing-gate and head southwest, diagonally across the field towards Kenardington church, lining yourself up with the bridges that cross the dykes. At this low point, it is easy to realise why the Saxon Shore Way is so called, for these fields would have been covered by water many centuries ago.
2 It is a gentle climb to St Mary’s, which occupies the site of a Saxon camp that was stormed by the Danes in the ninth century. Follow the pathway that bears right from the church door, and as you leave the churchyard, you will notice a stile to your right. Cross this and head along the fence, eventually you will descend via a series of steps to a lane. Turn right, continuing around the corner and on for several hundred yards until reaching a T junction.
3 Turn right and walk along the lane up the hill. Just before you reach the junction with the B2067, there is a path on your right, follow this past the houses and eventually down some steps to the B2067. Turn right, walking along the road, taking extreme care. Just by the village entrance sign for Warehorne, you can use a remnant of the route of the old road on the left hand side to pass the World’s Wonder restaurant.
When you reach the B road again, you will see a concrete drive on the opposite side. Proceed along this for around 200 yards until you notice a stile on the left hand side. Cross this and walk straight across the field; as you continue there should be a house just to your left. The path will eventually climb along the right hand side of a row of bushes until you will reach a familiar swing-gate, with just two fields to cross back to Warehorne, from which you can continue the previous walk via the churchyard down to the canal.
Route to Orlestone Forest (1½ miles each way)

To reach Fagg's Wood, which is part of the Orlestone Forest, head along the road towards Tenterden from the crossroads. You will pass beneath the railway bridge and bypass bridge, and at the top of the hillock there is a byway on your right. Follow this and eventually it will emerge into open fields. Follow the right-hand field edge as the path gently climbs. The path follows the line of the fence to your right and eventually reaches a small gate.
Continue up through the woods and then diagonally across an open field. Another short wooded section will bring you out to Malthouse Lane. Turn right along the lane and several hundred yards later turn left into the gravel entrance to Faggs Wood. There is a picnic area here and if you continue to the end of the gravel track you will find a path into the woodlands. Feel free to explore the reserve and return to Hamstreet the way you came.
Hamstreet Pub walks
Walk 1:
Return to the crossroads and head out of the village towards Tenterden, passing under the railway and the bypass. After this second bridge, climb the steps to the left and follow the stoney path beside the bypass untill you find a style to right of you.
Here a very pleasant footpath heads across several fields straight for the square tower of Warehorne church. Opposite this church is the sixteenth century Woolpack which serves food and has a traditional ambience.
An underground tunnel from the church to the pub was once used by smugglers.
Next on our list is the World's Wonder. Turn right from the pub along the lane for 100 yards, then take the farm track left and footpath that comes off on the right. Follow this across the fields and down to the concrete access road.
When you reach this turn right until you come to the B2067. The pub will be straight ahead. The lay-by is the original route of the road which used to be much narrower and winding.
There are real ales and a restaurant here. You will probably want to return to Hamstreet the way you came, as the B2067 is not the most pleasant road to walk along due to the speed of the traffic. Alternatively there is a bus service (consult timetables first).

Walk 2: Head south on the former A2070 towards New Romney until you pass the garden centre and cross the canal (there is a nice wide grass verge to walk on).
Turn left and follow the canal. You will pass an old pill box on the opposite bank. The path varies from bridleway to footpath to gravel track, and it is hoped that one day the whole canal bank will be upgraded to cycleway in the way that the eastern 7 miles has been. You will eventually come to Ruckinge bridge.
Turning left and crossing the bridge you will evntually come to a T-junction and will see the Blue Anchor on the right. This pub is open all day and again has a pool table and restaurant. The beer garden is also very pleasant.
For our next pub you will need to return to the canal bank and continue where you left off - this time on the north bank. You will eventually reach Bilsington bridge.
Again a left turn will take you up the hill (where you may wish to make a short detour to see the picturesque church, and will notice the monument to Cosway which has recently been renovated) and you will find the White Horse pub at the crossroads. The real ales here are recommended and there is a large restaurant.
There is a bus stop here if you are feeling tired; but if you are doing this walk in daylight, you may wish to explore the wooded nature of the area passing through Hamstreet woods, but beware this route is around four miles with no refreshment stops.
To do this follow 'B2067 Hamstreet' down the narrow hill and back up again until after a sharp bend to the right you will find a byway after the farm on the right. Follow this up through woodlands and watch out for the sudden change of direction (left) half way.
Go straight ahead when you reach the T-junction of lanes, and at the next T-junction take a left (Gill Lane) down into Hamstreet Woods. Bear right and follow the Saxon Shore Way down to the village.
At the other end of the woods is a car park. Here you can turn left along the lane (passing another pill-box) and right when you reach the one way street for another pint in the Duke's or to continue onto walk 1.
Alternatively, climb over two styles (right then left) and follow the footpath back to the station.
Hamstreet walk 7 miles
Parking is available at Hamstreet Village car park (TR0015 3329). There is a nice pub and a good village shop here as well as a Garden Centre with a nice café and toilets.
Left out of Hamstreet car park onto The Street. At the cross roads take the right turn onto Ruckinge Road past the Dukes Head. Take the left turn into Bourne Lane – the footpath signs for the Greensand and Saxon Shore paths indicate the way.
At the entrance to Hamstreet Woods – follow the indicated path for the Greensand Way/Saxon Shore Way. Continue to follow these signs out of the woods, follow the Saxon Shore Way north up Gill Lane and turn right past a few houses. As indicated by the Saxon Shore way markers, turn left into the driveway and then carry on past a house with a balcony on three sides, stay on the path to join the lane Ash Hill. Take the path opposite, cross two fields onto the byway between Norland Wood and Pierland Wood. Stay on this track – ignore the sign for the Saxon Shore Way which goes off to the left.
The track turns and heads south, down hill to Herne Hill on the Hamstreet Road east of Ruckinge, turn right onto this road and in about two hundred metres take the footpath on the left across from Marshside Farm, heading down to the Military Canal.
At the lane gate by the canal, turn right up the lane, cross the road at the T junction and take the footpath opposite, across from the The Blue Anchor. Keep heading north, this path runs parallel to Ash Hill for about 1km.

Walk a few paces left, continue in the same direction up the edge of the field, then turn left again to cross another bridge. Scramble through some scrub and follow the path ahead to another stile and on to a road.
3 Turn right, then right again at the road junction. You pass Bettenham Manor, turn left up a bridleway, over a bridge, then pass Sissinghurst Castle (still home to Vita Sackville-West's heirs), keeping the building on the left.

Small Hythe wine trail 3 miles
Walk ahead between 2 gardens heading for the stile opposite. After the stile, cross the field to the far corner, keeping the ditch to your right. At this point veer diagonally right to the edge of the next field, crossing a stile by a metal gate. Keep to the right of next field with hedge and ditch to your right and after another stile, continue to the far side of the field, crossing a small footbridge and stile, then heading towards the oast houses in the distance (Dumbourne). Cross to the hedge and follow the boundary property keeping the hedge to your left, through a gate with a pond to your left to a stile in the left hand corner opposite, with oast houses to your left. Keep the hedge to your left, then cross a stile at the end of the field. The route then leaves the High Weald Landscape Trail at this point. Instead, follow the track to the left, which winds its way uphill towards woodland. Keep on the track past Ashenden Farm all the way back to the B2082. Turn left at the road, crossing with care to take the footpath signed opposite after 15 yards or so. Follow the track with Pickhill Cottage on your left. At this point you will see the pale green roofs of the Winery in the distance off to the left. Just past ‘Hongland’, the track turns right, then immediately left, before continuing between property boundary walls and hedges to a gate. Cross the stile straight ahead, following the footpath between fences either side. The path then continues due south for a mile or so before passing a series of buildings, then a single cottage where the track turns left. After 75 yards or so, look for a stile on the left and follow the footpath straight across the field heading for the winery buildings. The route passes by a stand of trees called the ‘Pheasantry’ on the left, with marshy land to the right. At the end of the field, cross the stile to the left of a metal gate and enter Tenterden Vineyard. Follow the track straight on between Auxerrois vines on the left and Bacchus on the right. Continue until you see an arrow indicating a right turn. The track then rises towards the winery buildings, where you turn right and then left past herb garden before reaching the Wine Store and car park.

1 From the converted church in the centre of the village, turn right down the lane, then left at the bottom to pass the ruined castle. Dating back to the 12th century, it was built to guard an important medieval trading route. Continue to the end of the lane, and then bear right. Where the road bears downhill, continue walking straight ahead along the lane. There are plenty of orchards here and it's a lovely sight in the spring when the blossom is out.
2 Come on to a surfaced area by College Farm. Keep walking ahead until you reach the road and then turn right. Go downhill passing a pond on the right-hand side. At a bend, nip over a stile to follow the footpath on the left.
3 Stroll along the top of the field to another stile, passing a pond on the right-hand side. Go through a gap in the hedge, over a metal gate and on to the road. Turn left and, after a few paces, take the footpath on the right.
4 Cross a stile into the field and follow the fence line past a tumbledown wall and up to the woods ahead. Continue to some iron railings, which you follow into the woods. Pass a pond on your left, cross a small bridge and continue ahead until you pop over a stile into a field. Bear slightly left, go through a gate, then head towards the treeline and turn right to cross a stile on to the road.

1 From the church, walk down Church Street, turn left at the bottom, then right along Cherry Garden Lane. Keep ahead, crossing over a road and continuing along the track, past a beech hedge.
2 The road soon opens out and you continue ahead, past the imposing Withersdane Hall and along the footpath. There are flat fields to either side but don't worry, this walk's not all so monotonous - just be patient. At the road, cross over and continue ahead, crossing two stiles to a track ahead - this can get very muddy. At a crossing of tracks maintain direction, and follow a marker post diagonally across a field. Now nip over a stile and come on to the road.
3 Walk to the right and you'll soon see a footpath on the left-hand side and a sign saying 'Welcome to Wye Downs'. Walk up the steps, over a stile and continue winding your way up to the top of the hill (still complaining that it's flat?). You get wonderful panoramic views from here. Keep walking ahead to join the road, passing the dramatic gorge known as the Devil's Kneading Trough on your right.
4 Cross over, turn left along the road, then join the North Downs Way on the right-hand side. Go through the gate and follow the high ground, skirting the valley on the left. The soil here is fine and red, a complete contrast to the usual chalky, flinty soil of Kent. Keep ahead, but don't hurry - the views to the left deserve some attention. After some fine walking you'll reach a bench and observation point above the Wye Memorial Crown.
5 Take the stile on the right, signed 'North Downs Way', and walk past a wood on your left. Climb another stile, then continue walking down, following some steps to join a metalled road. Bear left and walk until the land starts dropping steeply away on your right. Turn left to follow the bridleway.
6 The route is easy to follow now. Make your way down the rather awkward steps, go through a gate and continue ahead to reach a road. Cross over and take the trackway opposite, through a nursery and greenhouses. At the road, turn left, then go straight ahead at the crossroads. Pass the New Flying Horse Inn then walk back up Church Street to the start.
Wye walk 6 miles
Wye to Chilham Rail Ramble 7 miles
The Stour Valley Walk follows the path of the River Stour as it meanders through the stunning countryside of East Kent, before reaching the sea at Pegwell Bay. One of the most beautiful sections of this walk can be found between the villages of Wye and Chilham, passing through a rolling landscape with panoramic views. Canterbury is 2.25 miles away and Ashford is 2 miles away. There are regular bus and train links to both towns from the start and finish points of the walk.
From the station at Wye walk up into the village crossing the River Stour for the first time, and turn left into church street. From the church follow the route signs for the North Downs Way and Stour Valley Walk, pass through the college buildings crossing a road and then out into open farmland. Here the Stour Valley Walk and the North Downs Way separate. Follow the path cutting diagonally left across the field towards woodland.
Once through the woodland the path dips into the valley offering stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The path continues through coppiced woodland to open meadow land and the village of Crundale. The path follows an unmade road branching off to the left across farmland leading into dense woodland, where the path is lined with yew trees. The path follows several sections of woodland, and as you approach Chilham, you will see views of the castle. The path then branches to your left over a stile, this link path then takes you back down to the river to the picturesque Chilham mill.
For Chilham village square follow the road from the mill to the A28 – take care crossing. The main square boasts timber framed houses, a 13th century church and the impressive castle gateway.
For the railway station turn right at the main road and continue for approximately 150 metres then turn left – the station should be clearly signed.
