Kent Year Round Walks

Kent Year Round Walks

by: Michael Easterbrook
A good walk in the countryside is always a pleasure. This full colour book offers 20 circular routes in the Kent countryside which are divided into the four seasons, although each of them offers an excellent walk in any month of the year. The walks are all clearly set out with a numbered route map to help you explore the Garden of England. Practical information includes distance, terrain, OS map references, starting point and grid reference, how to get there and refreshment options.

The 'What to Look Out for' sections describe seasonal things of interest to note along the way. In the spring there are butterflies and orchards filled with bright blossom; summer brings rare orchids on the chalk Downs and dragonflies darting by rivers. Then come the rich autumnal hue of beech woods and field maple, followed by the winter months with migrating flocks of water birds by the coast and berries in the woods and hedgerows.

The book contains walks in the Darent Valley at Otford, there are visits to historic buildings such as St Radigund's Abbey and the superb, moated house at Ightham Mote. You can enjoy the Weald of Kent at Pembury and timber-framed houses at Wingham and Headcorn. There are also plenty of windmills and oast houses, butterflies and wild flowers to discover.
