This walk is set in the Eden Valley, which for the most part is in the care of the National Trust. The walk was inaugurated by Kent County Council in 1991; a 15-mile route which links the Vanguard Way, where it passes to the west of Edenbridge, and both the Wealdway and Medway Valley Walk in Tonbridge.
The walk enters the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and passes through parkland, woodland and open fields. The route is also rich in historical architecture with Penshurst Place, both Hever and Tonbridge castles, and many historic churches.
We will walk the 15 mile trail with another 3 miles to return back to Edenbridge.
I suggest parking at Edenbridge and catching the 8.44am replacement bus service from Edenbridge ( not Edenbridge Town) to Tonbridge.The cost is £5 less railcard or group discounts. Otherwise we meet outside Tonbridge Station at 9.30am
For those who are not fussed about completing the whole Eden Valley Path, you can leave at Edenbridge and your walk will be approximately 12 miles
