The North Downs Way Section 6 commences in the town of Otford, leading us on an ascent of Otford Ridge from the station. Surprisingly, the climb is less steep than anticipated, revealing an ancient Tumulus along the way. Progressing eastward along the North Downs, our path meanders atop the ridge, guiding us past Trosley Country Park, a World War 2 cadet training camp, and sections of Neolithic Medway—marking the early settlement of England by the Neolithic population. The conclusion of our route awaits at Cuxton train station.
