A good walk between Harrietsham and Lenham, with extant Saxon (or earlier) hedgerows, and coming across one of the springs, fed by chalk aquifers in the Downs which feed the River Stour and the River Len. This area was famed for it’s watercress beds up until the 19th Century.

An interesting flint circle surrounding a tree along our route provided pleasing proof that this agricultural community continues to pay service to the Old Ways.
