This walk through ancient woodland crosses an old droveway before entering open countryside that has wide views across the Swale estuary. Kent Wildlife Trust owns and manage much of the woodland.
The walk has stiles, bridges and some moderate gradients. The Blean is on heavy clay in places so can get wet and muddy - boots are recommended. Please note that dogs must be kept under close control at all times. The public footpath should remain as published on the leaflet but please be aware that The Blean is a working landscape and features change from time to time.
