Yalding is an attractive village, with many old buildings to look at. The church has an unusual spire and the area around the church is worth visiting, with the old Town Bridge (the longest surviving medieval bridge in Kent) and its long and narrow stone span providing a picturesque walk over the river. The walk continues along the banks of the River Beult and through the pretty villages of Benover and Laddingford.

The return stretch takes you along an exceptionally pretty stretch of the River Medway. At the final stretch of the river, as you approach Yalding again, allow time to visit Teapot Island. It is well worth a visit; the exhibition has over 3,500 teapots, each with its own unique history. There is a wonderful array of colours and designs and even a signature teapot representing Teapot Island - a green island in the sea with a little fishing-boat. After admiring the teapot display, visitors can enjoy a cream tea, lunch or dinner in the riverside cafe.

Even tho this walk involves a lot of road walking, it is still very enjoyable, plenty of lovely houses and cottages to look at en route. The walk along the River Medway is very pretty, with some amazing boats to look at. Popped in to see the collection of teapots at teapot island, totally amazing, well worth a visit. Walk instructions were perfect and also made the distance around 7 miles.
