Looking for a great walk this year, then try this new route, written by the author of 1066 Harold’s Way, that will take you to some of the most beautiful scenery in Kent and Sussex.
Publisher: Bretwalda Books (14 May 2015)
Discover ancient woodland, peaceful villages and enjoy the spectacular views of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in this 50 mile circular walk that links four great National Trust properties: Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst Castle, Scotney Castle and Bateman’s.
They provide the inspiration to enjoy the High Weald and its unique cultural heritage, history and industry. Imagine a rolling countryside with few houses, a seemingly quiet landscape of great woods, trickling streams and remote country pubs.
This was once the heart of England’s iron industry but the furnace fires have long gone and the works of man have returned to farming. There are tales of smugglers and Mechanical riots, Napoleon’s horse and aliens in Robertsbridge.
But be careful when you walk for there’s a ‘vengeful dragon’ about in Angley Wood.
