Darent Valley Path

Three River Valley Walks in West Kent Guidebook

Three River Valley Walks in West Kent Guidebook

by: Robert Peel
This guidebook describes the complete routes for the following long distance paths in Kent
Darent Valley Path - 20 miles
Eden Valley Walk - 15 miles
Medway Valley Walk - 28 miles

When walkers list the features that make a route special, water is always near the top. Here we have three long-distance walks along river valleys that offer not only water but fine countryside and historic interest. Despite being within easy reach of large centres of population, including Greater London, these paths are not busy and pass through some remarkably remote-feeling countryside.

The walks pass fine stately homes, classic medieval halls and manor houses, woodland, lavender fields, historic bridges, riverside meadows, locks, marinas, old churches, castles, former water mills, nature reserves and farmland. On or nearby the route are picturesque villages and small market towns. There are also larger towns and some areas still recovering from an industrial past and it is pleasing to see how rapidly they are doing so and the emphasis given in some new developments to enhancement of formerly neglected waterfronts.

As well as detailed descriptions of the routes and full-colour mapping at a scale of 1:25,000, the book includes information about the many points of interest and much background material about the geology, geography and history of west Kent. The book is nicely illustrated with plenty of colour photographs. The routes are described in sections and information is provided for planning how best to undertake the walks. Previous guides for these three walks have long been out of print. Here in one volume is the opportunity to discover their delights and achieve the satisfaction of completing them all.
