Overview

Linear to Eynsford Station led by Nigel S (Mobile No: 07793 629809). The walk visits three history filled villages, Otford, Shoreham (lunch stop) and Eynsford (return train) which are linked by the River Darent and includes two castles and a Roman villa. There is a fairly steep climb and descent before lunch in Shoreham where there are three pubs and a village store: bring picnic. After lunch a climb through Beechen Woods and into Lullingstone Park. Map: E147/162, L188/177.
