    Gentle walk through the Kentish Weald to one of the tallest follies in Britain. Length Main Walk, to Hadlow: 13¼ km (8.2 miles). Three hours 5 minutes walking time. For the whole excursion including trains, sights and meals, allow at least 7½ hours. Long Walk, to Tonbridge: 20¼ km (12.6 miles). Four hours 45 minutes walking time. OS Maps Explorers 147 & 148 (plus 136 for the Long Walk). Hildenborough, map reference TQ557485, is in Kent, 4 km NW of Tonbridge. Toughness 2 out of 10 (3 for the Long Walk). Features After an unpromising start – 1 km of roadside walking – you eventually escape into typical Wealden countryside of fields, meadows and the occasional wood. At Shipbourne (pronounced Shibbun) you join the Greensand Way for a short section to the hamlet of Dunk's Green, then head south-east along the valley of the River Bourne to Hadlow. On this last stretch you find yourself heading towards one of the more peculiar sights you are likely to encounter on a Home Counties walk: a multi-tiered Gothic folly, taller than Nelson's Column....
