Weald – an area of SE England between the parallel chalk escarpments of the North and South Downs. The name is derived from the Old English/Germanic word ‘wald’ meaning wood, as the area was once covered with forest. Join us on this voyage of discovery around the western end of the Weald……to see how different it is from the surrounding chalk downland. Be prepared for the ‘drop-off’ and some wealden clay!

This walk is less informative and more about letting your senses soak up the different landscape.

Lunch stop – options include own picnic or local cafe.

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.
