50 Walks in Kent

50 Walks in Kent

by Rebecca Ford
A third of Kent is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and this fine landscape is also varied and a pleasure to explore on foot. To the north are the Downs, the uplands that run through Kent like a long chalky spine; to the south is the High Weald, an area of wild woodland and rolling hills. The coastline is different again, a delicate ribbon of dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches and mysterious marshlands. And sprinkled liberally through this ancient landscape are orchards, oast houses, hop gardens, photogenic villages with weatherboarded cottages and duck ponds, traditional inns and sleepy churchyards.

This guide explores some of the best of Kent's countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour clear waypointed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel giving distance, time, ascent, grid references and car parking followed by a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments. The guide is illustrated with colour photographs.
