A circular walk from historic Wye in the Kent Downs AONB
Rising up steeply from the flatland of the Kentish Weald, the North Downs offer a dramatic landscape in a relatively flat county. Novelist H.E. Bates, who set The Darling Buds of May in his native Kent, described the Downs as “an unfailing compass-point with a magnetism that draws you towards them”.
This walk takes you from the picturesque village of Wye in the valley of the River Stour, up onto the ridge of the North Downs. Enjoy huge, sweeping views across the county and discover some of the features in the landscape that make this such a captivating place.
