Goudhurst and Kilndown Millennium Walk

This is a six mile walk starting in the village of Goudhurst with superb views across the Weald of Kent. The route is fairly well signposted, but it is advisable to purchase Ordnance Survey Explorer map 136. If you rely on the latter please bear in mind that this was printed 10 years ago and some of the footpaths have been re-routed. Most of the route is on footpaths, some of which can be muddy and there is a small amount of road walking involved where you must be careful and keep an eye on children and dogs.

This route joins the High Weald landscape trail which goes north to Horsmonden and south to Cranbrook.

Part of the route circumnavigates the reservoir on quiet country lanes, and offers the opportunity to pop into local pubs for a quick drink or a bite to eat. Alternatively pack a picnic and enjoy the vistas from many of the vantage points along the way. On occasions the pathway can be muddy and suitable footwear is essential for both mountain bikers and walkers alike.
