This walk takes you through spring meadows grazed by dairy herds, sun-drenched fields of marigolds in summer, abundant orchards in autumn and ancient woodlands alive with wildfowl in winter.

Whatever the time of year, you’ll be captivated by the tranquil beauty of this remote rural haven, where rolling countryside is studded only by sleepy villages, historic churches, hop gardens and tractors at work in the fields and orchards.

Setting out from the picture-postcard village of Sheldwich, where the crack of leather on willow rings out in summer from its cricket pitch, you’ll pass stunning homes as you make your way deep into farming country.

Through cornfields and along country lanes, discover remote hamlets and the farms that work these fertile downland foothills.
