We are going to travel back in time to reimagine the tranquil setting of this walk under very different circumstances. Not that long ago, this beautiful area was filled with smoke and the sound of hammers striking iron echoed all around. Very little remains of the hundreds of bloomeries, forges and furnaces that were once active across the Weald. Nature’s ability to heal and hide should give us hope for our own despoliation of the natural world.

 

Rural Strides is passionate about the history and cultural landscape of the Western Weald. Through engaging walks, which interpret the land and share local stories, we seek to connect people not only to the beauty of the area but also to inspiring local businesses. We hope you will find a Rural Strides walk an authentic and memorable experience, that will leave you feeling like a local!
