Starting from the station, we ascend to the North Downs ridge, where we leisurely stroll along its expanse. Once atop the North Downs, the terrain levels out, offering splendid panoramic views across the valley. Our path follows the Vanguard valley, passing by a golf course and captivating landscapes. Abundant in flora, the route is adorned with natural beauty. During our reconnaissance of the walk, we were fortunate to encounter a herd of wild Roe deer, so keep your eyes open.

The conclusion of our route awaits at Otford station.
