Start time: 10:00
(Estimated finish time: 15:30)
Moderate 10 miles / 16.1 km
A moderate/hilly 10.5 mile walk with fine views over the Darent Valley.
From the pretty village of Farningham we will ascend the East side of the valley before descending, visiting Eynsfords’ castle & picturesque bridge/ford, then ascend up the West side stopping at the highest point at approx 6 miles for refreshments & picnic lunch at Lullingstone Clubhouse (I recommend bringing a packed lunch, or at least a backup snack in case the small bar & kitchen is too busy with golfers to make sandwiches & hot snacks in the time we’ll have there).
The remaining 4.5 miles will be mainly descending, with fines views including Lullingstone Castle, before one final ascent with views over Eynsford before returning to Farningham.
Option of a drink or food afterwards in the Pied Bull, Farningham.
Parking on High Street in Farningham between church & Lion Hotel.
Eynsford Station is approx 1.5 miles from start/finish with infrequent 429 bus service.
Toilets at 6 mile lunch stop only, none at the start point.
Could Ramblers members please join the list to help the Walk Leader to manage numbers, many thanks.
