The walk is part of a series of walks along the Darenth Valley between the Thames and Chipstead lakes that Bob has done before and will include information on some of the properties and sites along the way, based upon information included in Rod Shelton’s book of the Darenth Valley.


The morning walk will go via Upper Austin Lodge, where we should now be able to view the Percy Pilture memorial, up over Preston Hill and down into Shoreham where we will follow the Dareth Valley Path back to Eynsford. Distance 7.1 miles.  We aim to be back for lunch at 1:15 pm which should allow for frequent information stops along the way.
