Sat 31 December: Swanley to Shoreham; 7 miles

Poplars along a farm trackA gently hilly walk through Kent farmland, and, after lunch, along the Darent Valley Path. There will be a meal break half way at the Plough in Eynsford.

The walk, including the meal stop, should take around four and a half  hours. You can download a map and elevation profile here.

You can also look at a map and aerial photograph side by side at the brilliant Where's the path? site, though the route is not marked on that.

Meet at Swanley station at 1008, or on the 0934 Dover Priory train from platform 6* at Victoria.  This train can also be boarded at Denmark Hill (0944, platform 4) and Bromley South (0958, platform 4). If travelling by train, buy a cheap day return ticket to Shoreham, which is the farther station from London.

If you are planning to come on this walk, please click on this Doodle poll link to let me know - this will not be taken as a binding commitment, but does help by letting me know roughly how many people to expect (and where to expect them). 

For more information about this or any other PFA walk, phone me on 07904 286774, or email me at secretary@pfalondon.org
