Next Longer Walks

These are for those who like to walk a bit further than our standard Health Walks. They can also sometimes be at a bit brisker pace and have some steeper inclines.  The next such walks coming up are as follows:

The Westerham Walk

Wednesday 31st August 2016
Meet at: Emmetts Garden, Emmetts Lane, Ide Hill, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN14 6BA
Time: 10.30am
Duration: 4½ hours (including lunch break).

This walk is in two parts.  Part 1 – 3½ miles approx., quite easy walking, mainly gently downhill with a couple of short steepish downhill then uphill when the footpath crosses a valley. At the end of this section we reach Westerham and have a break of an hour  for lunch. There are at least 4 cafés and 3 pubs in close proximity to the green or you can picnic on the green.  Part 2 – 2½ miles approx. returning to Emmetts. This is much more challenging as it is obviously uphill and on occasions the uphill is quite steep!

It is possible for you to do the first part only. Westerham has a Pay & Display Car Park. You could pair up with another car to travel to Emmetts which takes about 10 mins.

On the entrance to Emmetts you do need an NT card to join the beginning of the walk or pay the entrance which is £8.

Mondays 29th August   &  31st October 2016
Meet at: The Farmhouse Pub, Ladbroke Road, Langshott, Horley, RH6 8PB
