Views from the North Downs Way, Hollingbourne - Heart of Kent Walking Festival 2022

Type:Guided Walk

Hollingbourne, Maidstone, Kent
Walkers on North Downs Way


Join the Medway Valley Countryside Partnership for a scenic view of the North Downs as part of the Heart of Kent Walking Festival 2022!

Although this is quite a difficult walk, it would take in some amazing views of the Kentish countryside and there would be the added bonus of the achievement of climbing the escarpment to reach these vistas. Attention could be given to the various raptors such as buzzards and maybe even red kite that should hopefully be flying over the Downs. A short detour off the NDW will include the view from the Woodland Trust Hucking Estate as seen within the images which may be a good spot for a packed lunch.

This is a dog friendly event (please keep on leads)

Walking boots recommended
