Walks And Walking – Bishopsbourne Walk In Kent
This is a relaxing 4 mile circular walking route in Kent around the delightful village of Bishopsbourne.
We parked the car just outside Bishopbourne’s Church and followed the waymarkers for the Elham Valley Way around the edge of the graveyard and into Bourne Park.
We continued our walk following the wide grassy path crossing over the small stone bridge at Nail Bourne, and then another bridge before joining Bourne Park Road at the metal kissing gate.
We then walked left down the lane by the two cottages to cross over another bridge where we saw a Little Egret fishing.
At the end of this lane we continued our walk straight ahead between the hedges up to a woodland where we then crossed over the old railway line at the overgrown stone bridge.
We continued our walk straight ahead crossing a stile at the top of the field and then straight down into the valley through the gap in the high hedges and up to a fgate by the road at Middle Pett Farm.
We then walked left down the lane and then left at the first waymarker just after Little Pett Farm.
We continued our walk up the field and followed the main path to the edge of Gorsley Wood.
We then walked sharp left along the clearly defined track into woodland where there were a few large log piles.
We continued our walk along the wide track walking left and then right diagonally down through the field to Crows Camp.
At the lane we walked left onto Crows Camp Road and followed it all the way back down to the Church at Bishopsbourne.
This walk took us just under 2 hours.
This was the perfect walk to test out Tedi’s new Hi-Tec walking boots. As Tedi is becoming quite the accomplished walker we went to Go Outdoors to get him properly fitted with some decent walking boots. We went for Hi-Tec as they were super lightweight, waterproof and had a really good grip and fit.
