This gentle route beneath the North Downs escarpment offers glimpses of an ancient landscape that, though continuously shaped by humans ever since the first farmers settled in the Medway Valley, still retains features that have persisted for hundreds if not thousands of years. They include the ancient Pilgrim’s Way trackway, coppice woods and arguably the most intact megalithic monument in the valley: Coldrum Long Barrow.
The trail also passes through Birling, an old village admired for its houses built of Kentish ragstone and quirky pub, the Nevill Bull, which serves locally-produced drinks and food
