A contrast between hidden valleys in the North Downs and the Darent Valley Path through three interesting villages (Eynsford, Otford and Shoreham).

Distance: 15.5km
Grading: Challenging
Rating: 7 out of 10
Ascent: 400m
Hiking time: About 4 to 5 hours of actual hiking



On our plan for today we will visit the Eynsford Castle.

It starts along a country lane through the secluded Austin Lodge valley, climbing to the isolated settlement of Romney Street.

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.

After passing extensive lavender fields at Castle Farm an attractive riverside stretch leads to Lullingstone Castle.
