This is an absolute favourite Sunday outing of mine. It reverses parts of TOCW1 Walk 36 - Borough Green to Sevenoaks - in Time Out Country Walks book one, then follows a glorious stretch of the Greensand Way which does not appear in any of the Time Out walks so far, and which climbs the escarpment of the Kent Downs from near Ightham Mote to Knole Park. This section of the path has superb views over the Weald to the south, and is especially enchanting in late April and early May when passes many bluebell woods, along with other wild flowers. Finally the walk finishes through Knole Park, following the route at the very end of walk 21, Sevenoaks to Leigh. Because it links Ightham Mote to Knole Park, the Greensand Way between these two points can also be used as an alternative for the central section of the Book 1 Walk 36 Borough Green to Sevenoaks walk. (Spookily, this also produces a total walk of 15.4km (9.6 miles)
