From the leader: Due to the bad weather forecast and the warnings issued by the met office, I have taken the decision to cancel the walk tomorrow.

This is a linear walk starting in Sevenoakes, we will join the Darent Valley Path, walking though open fields to Otford, then we join the River Darent and though the hop vines of Shoreham. Darent Valley Path takes us to Lullingstone where we can see the Lullingstone Castle and the remain of an old roman villa.

Though the golf course and over field, where you will see the Viaduct and we finish the pretty village of Eynsford. Possible pub stop at the end before catching the train.

About our walks

Non-members are welcome to join us for 3 "trial" walks before deciding to join us. You don't need to book in advance - just turn up on the day.

All our walks are graded to give you an idea of what each one will be like. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short, easy walk first. It's better to find a walk too easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.

Please remember

  • Bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather conditions.
  • Bring something to drink, even if the walk has a pub stop. On most full day walks you'll need to bring a picnic lunch. The walk details will show this.
  • If you wish to bring your dog on a walk, you must ask the walk leader in advance as some walks are not suitable for dogs.
  • Please arrive early so that the walk can start on time. We'll wait up to 10 minutes if you let us know you've been delayed en-route.

All our walks are led by SYW members. Please follow their instructions, don't walk ahead of them, and let them know if you decide to leave the walk before the end.
