It continues on an undulating section to a ridge with fine views of the Darent valley, from where you descend into Otford, passing its scale model of the Solar System. The village has many interesting old buildings and the route takes you past the ruins of Otford Palace.

This route also goes past Eagle Heights, one of the UK's largest Bird of Prey centres.
