Linton, Loose and Langley Loop and the Greensand Way - Heart of Kent Walking Festival

About

This long walk sets off from the enchanting village of Linton, located on the southward slope of the Greensand Ridge, with panoramic views of the Weald of Kent. The route will follow some of the Greensand Way, named after the sandstone ridge that crosses Surrey & Kent. A hallmark of this route is the number of magnificent houses, gardens and parks that you will see. After Hunton the walk turns back through the attractive Loose Valley, well known for its stream and tumble of old cottages. The remains of thirteen paper mills lie along the valley, and you may spot the haul stones where the wagons were hitched to and the trough where the horse would drink. The walk will continue past Langley Loch to a lunch stop at the village pub or a picnic in the churchyard. In the afternoon the walk will turn again at Ulcombe for more Greensand Ridge on the way back.
