Overview

This is an anticlockwise walk from Penshurst including some fine views and a few less familiar paths. The walk is moderate but there are a few short climbs in the first half, along with a few stiles and some slippery sections. The walk ends at the start point, however if the weather is reasonable and anyone wishes to, we can add a 2.4 mile loop around Penshurst place. The Leicester Arms is ideal for post walk drinks/lunch or alternatively the Porcupine Pantry cafe at Penshurst Place (if open).
