11/08/09 Nice sunny humid day,our 2nd Kent walk. We don't know our East from West, so, facing the visitor center front, we turned right, passing the route map board and three steps, down to the main path and turned left following the "Blue walk" sign. We stopped at Coldrum Barrow stones really interesting and nice view. At the end of point 5 at 94 Chapel Street, we turned right shortly to arrive at the T-junction for the excellent Duke of Wellington pub, one of the best laid out pubs we have visited, ideal for everyone and very friendly as were the villagers, at the end of point 6 the sign post is hidden in the bushes so you can easily miss it, it was also overgrown, so out came the cutters, should help for a while. Although the path off left is very visible, heading towards the hill. At point 10 the fun bit, its nice and steep, we felt well chuffed that we made it in one go, we brought walking poles a few days later, as we are planning on doing more Kent walks soon. Really nice pleasant walk, we would like to do the walk again in the future.

Did this walk on February 10th 2008. Fantastic weather, very spring like. This is a great walk and there were stretches where I didn't see anyone. Unusual in Kent. Be warned that it was VERY soggy, wet and muddy through the Ryarsh Woods. My 2 dogs and I thoroughly enjoyed this. Thanks.
