Walks for all Ages in Kent

Walks for all Ages in Kent

by: Hugh Taylor and Moira McCrossan
Kent is 'The Garden of England', a pleasant, fertile land of orchards and gardens. It was the cradle of Christianity in England and a coast that has been frequently threatened with invasion over the centuries. The White Cliffs of Dover represent home to English exiles, while its history is full of shipwrecks and ruthless smuggling gangs.

At Canterbury you can visit the site where St Augustine brought Christianity to England and Chaucer set his pilgrims to walk. In Rochester you can see buildings that inspired Charles Dickens, while at nearby Higham you can find his dream house and the inn where he dined. Back on the marsh at Cooling is the church, where he imagined Pip finding the graves of his parents and little brothers.

Each of the 20 circular walks in this book begins with a description of the local area, followed by fully detailed route instructions. Full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale Explorer mapping supports the text and there are snippets of useful information as you go along. The book also has lots of colour photographs throughout. At the beginning of each walk practical information listed includes distance, gradient, difficulty, approximate time, number of stiles, OS Explorer map number, path description, start point grid reference, parking information, suitability for dogs and local refreshment facilities and public toilets.
