A circular trail from the small village of Lynsted in Kent. Exploring this part of Kent will help you to understand why it is known as ‘The Garden of England’ as you pass through orchards of cherries, plums, apples and pears along with fields of strawberries. The Plough Inn is ideally placed half way round the walk - a great place to take a break with a pint or delicious lunch. The walk is a relatively flat and is a mixture of road walking on quiet country lanes and field walking through the orchards and pastures. Some of the fields will be holding sheep so take care with dogs. There are a number of gates and three stiles all with wire mesh surrounds with just a medium-size gap underneath for dogs (our standard poodle just squeezed through). Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

Completed this walk with two young children. As usual the directions were spot on and very easy to follow, thank you. This wasn't our favourite walk but was still enjoyable. The kids loved seeing the different fruits growing; apples, pears, plums, blackcurrants, cherries and blackberries. We were very lucky as all the footpaths had been cut back very recently, I can imagine they get overgrown frequently. I would definitely advise trousers for this walk as nettles are around every corner. We visited The Black Lion pub at the end of our walk and enjoyed a roast dinner and beer.
