A ramble from Wateringbury, climbing gently to the hoppers huts at Shingle Barn Farm then descending to Yalding. We will walk through meadows and woodland, enjoying views of the Medway Valley and passing through the historic village of Yalding. We finish at Yalding station. Shops, cafes and pubs in the village offer options for anybody wishing to purchase their own refreshments before making their onward journey back to Wateringbury or home by train. 

This is a dog friendly walk (please keep dogs on leads). 

It is recommended to arrive my public transport due to limited parking.
