East Blean Woods is a great place to enjoy being outdoors in the fresh air, it has waymarked trails and unmarked paths that meander through the beautiful woodland. The Big Blean Walk, a 25 mile circular walk, passes through East Blean Woods. The walk, combined with 18 new interpretive panels, promotes The Blean to visitors and locals, inviting people to explore a world of history and nature. The walk has been developed by the Kentish Stour Countryside Partnership as a member of the Blean Initiative, which is a partnership of landowners, local authorities, parish councils, conservation bodies and community groups that look after and promote The Blean. The Big Blean Walk is part funded by Heritage Lottery and the Kent Wildlife Trust.
