The High Weald Landscape Trail

Section 4 – 14 miles

The end time given for this event is the approximate time of arrival at Tunbridge Wells station at the end of the hike.

Please read the Three Golden Rules of Joined Up Hiking.

Are you OK with those? All right, then you may continue...

As usual we go at a fast medium pace. We walk faster and longer than most other groups. Make sure you will be able to keep up and not get left behind.

We will have about five and a half hours of hiking plus a stop for a picnic lunch and a pub stop later in the afternoon for a drink.

You must bring a packed lunch.

There is a £2 charge payable to the organizer on the day.

Some general recommendations and tips.

      Sorry I missed you all today - I should have looked back at the route from the last walk to see where you finished, it seems you were way behind me by the time I reached the trail! Had a good walk in any case, hope you all had fun.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
