    A contrast between hidden valleys in the North Downs and the Darent Valley Path through three interesting villages. Next event: http://www.senderismoenlondres.co.uk/events.html

    Main Walk: 21½ km (13.4 miles). Five hours 35 minutes walking time. For the whole excursion including trains, sights and meals, allow at least 10 hours.

    Some of this walk will be familiar from the two Book 1 walks which start in Otford, but most of it covers new ground. It starts along a country lane through the secluded Austin Lodge valley, climbing to the isolated settlement of Romney Street. It continues on an undulating section to a ridge with fine views of the Darent valley, from where you descend into Otford, passing its scale model of the Solar System. The village has many interesting old buildings and the full route takes you past the ruins of Otford Palace, a rival to Hampton Court in Tudor times.

    Transport

    Eynsford is on the Blackfriars to Sevenoaks line, with a half-hourly stopping service taking 55 minutes. You can also take a fast train from Victoria to Bromley South and change there for the Sevenoaks train. Shoreham and Otford are the next two stations down the line from Eynsford, so buy a return to one of these stations (rather than Eynsford) if you might want to finish there.

    There is a very limited bus service through Eynsford, Shoreham and Otford (Go-Coach 2, Mon–Sat), but it will usually be quicker to head for the nearest station if you want to abandon the walk.

    If driving, there is a small car park “free for rail users” at Eynsford station. There is also a small free car park in the village (near the return route, but nearly 1 km from the station).

  • WALKING IN KENT | 🇬🇧 EYNSFORD England | Hiking UK
    Hiking In London, Apr-20

    I was joined by Candice again on our 5th date together, for a 5 mile walk in and around Eynsford in Kent. This walk had loads of history, including 2 castles, a church and even a Roman Villa! It followed a section of the Darent Valley Path with views of the River Darent and some stretches of woodland walking through Lullingstone Park.

    Eynsford Circular walk

    A contrast between hidden valleys in the North Downs and the Darent Valley Path through three interesting villages.

    Normalmente se piensa que Henley es una ciudad ribereña pero, como demuestra esta caminata, también se encuentra en el extremo sur de las colinas de Chiltern, una zona encantadora de valles ocultos, bosques mixtos y tierras de cultivo, y pendientes en gran parte suaves.

    El paseo principal tiene una colina empinada sustancial. El paseo nos llevara por un lado y por el otro del largo valle que conduce a Stonor, con muchas vistas encantadoras sobre la colina en el camino. El regreso es pasando granjas ocultas y a través de bosques antiguos en Henley, con sus excelentes salas de té.

  • Eynsford Circular
    Javier Vagabond, Oct-18

  • Eynsford Circular. 3/6/13
    amib, Jun-13

    Yet another wonderful 12 miles of walking in the North Downs and along The Darent Valley Path.

    Straight after leaving the station, the walker is strolling along a quiet country lane and enjoying some delightful June scenery; then, it's across the first of two golf courses traversed today, prior to an ascent into woodland and fields providing some impressive views back towards central London. This is followed by a descent into the lovely Magpie Bottom valley and another wood.

    Hereafter, this walker diverged from the written text briefly to get a taste of the route into Otford via the North Downs Way; it's probably not as scenic as the original route, but the aim was to avoid some busy 'A' road walking.

    Lunch was taken on a bench on the 'alternative' route prior to the stroll down into Otford, with its tiny duck house and famous miniature 'solar system'.

    Thereafter, the route back to Eynsford follows the Darent Valley Path past another golf course and the attractive village of Shoreham. Then, it's on across more fields into Lullingstone Park, with its 'Castle' and Roman Villa.

    The finale is an ascent up to Eagle Heights, a bird of prey centre, and some fine views of the listed railway viaduct.

    Another great day's walking, aided and abetted by some beautiful June weather.
