This three in one walk follows the route of old droveways through ancient woodland before returning through open fields and historic farmsteads of the Sarre Penn Valley. Kent Wildlife Trust now own and manage much of the woodland.

The walk has stiles, steps and some moderate gradients. The Blean is on heavy clay so can get wet and very muddy - boots are recommended. Please note that dogs must be kept under close control at all times.
