Virtual Walks – Walking the High Weald 1: Bodiam Castle to Sissinghurst Castle

Thumbnail Blog

Possibly the most beautiful castle in all of England, rising up from its moat, built to guard what was once the Appledore Estuary against a French Invasion. Follow the route along the flood plain of the River Rother and across the ancient Kent Ditch into meadow and pasture, mature trees and woods and isolated houses and farms that are the only habitation until Sandhurst.

The wealth of Sandhurst was not built on iron, but on farming, sheep and wool and later, no doubt, smuggling played its part too. The same can be said of Benenden with its beautiful green, one of the best and biggest in Kent, that resounds to cricket on lazy days in the summer.
