This walk was originally compiled by Alan and Janet Love; sadly both are no longer with us. Alison Gilbert has kindly offered to take them over. Alison and Walkingworld would like all these excellent walks to remain as a continuing tribute to Alan and Janet.

Starting from the village of Pembury, which is situated adjacent to the A21 and a mere four miles from Royal Tunbridge Wells, you are soon into woods and open countryside with superb walking. Our walk takes you through 'Pick Your Own' country with two farm shops en route, through numerous fruit orchards, woods, paddocks and pastureland, with minimum road-walking. This is a fairly easy walk with one short climb up through a pinewood, few stiles and mainly easy going when dry. It has the distinction towards the end of the walk of using a stretch of the embankment of the A21 as a footpath; quite safe, we might add.

Great walk. Very varied. Had lunch at the first farm shop. Very easy to follow. Don't worry about main road traffic most of the paths near main roads are enclosed. Gorgeous woods midway

Very nice walk through the Garden of Eden. Take a bag to collect some goodies from the farm shop(s). With reference to item 16, there is no diagonal walk through the apple trees before the two cottages (new orchard planted) so follow second instruction of straight on and then left (same difference). Item 19 look carefully for the small style by farm buildings (easily missed). If you end up at house (silver doors) and garden you have missed it!

Lovely walk through the fruit farms of Kent. During spring the apple and cherry blossom is beautiful. At point 8 the Downingbury farm shop is worth a visit. One of my favourite walks in Kent. Dog friendly but they will need to be on leads while walking across Pippin farm.
