The walk starts and finishes in ancient oak and chestnut woods, crossing the Sarre Penn stream into the open countryside of the Broad Oak Valley.
The walk has some soft surface, gentle gradients and footbridges. The Blean is on heavy clay so can get very muddy when wet - boots are recommended. Please note that dogs must be kept under close control at all times. The public footpaths should remain as published but please be aware that The Blean is a working landscape and features change from time to time.
