Charming Chestfield village is located just a mile away from the north coast of Kent. Along the route you’ll find fantastic hilltop views over the village and towards the sea from the manicured greens of the Chestfield Golf Club.

Along the walk you’ll pass a pass a manor house with the gory local legend that St Thomas More’s head is buried here. This was his daughter Margaret’s home and it is said that after he was behead by Henry VIII she buried his head in the gardens.

A number of ancient houses are along the walk, formed from the old Tythe barn and embellished with church materials, including a magnificent stone rose window.
