About

A Way with Words is a guided 4 mile walk run by a North Down Way Ambassador, as part of the Heart of Kent Walking Festival 2022.


Inspired by the words of William Wordsworth’s “I wandered lonely as a cloud” poem, a Way with words, combines a walking, wellbeing, and words themed experience designed to inspire the creative mind just waiting to escape from within all of us.

This walk will follow part of the Greensands Way and pass the weathered walls of Boughton Monchelsea Place, skirt the edges of a deer park before ending up in the beautiful grounds of Linton Park, home to the impressive white walled Palladian mansion, known for its very high flagpole.
