A circular walk through the rolling West Kent Weald, through ancient woodlands, pretty villages and an Iron Age fort, stopping at a village pub towards the end.

We will walk to Cowden village and pick up the Sussex Border Path, following this up to the site of Dry Hill Iron Age fort over the border into Surrey, close to where the three counties of Kent, Sussex and Surrey meet.  Dry Hill has a trig point at 172m and should afford nice views north to the Greensand Ridge and south to the Ashdown Forest.  From here we head north east towards Hever and, now safely back in Kent, we pick up the Eden Valley Walk towards Chiddingstone.  Heading south through Stock Wood, we climb back up to Markbeech to stop in the village pub for a pint, before heading back to the station.
