1.0 out of 5 stars Simply infuriating 31 Jan. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book recently following the completion of a different (better) Kent walk book, hoping to carry on striding around the countryside; not standing in the middle of fields infuriated with the shockingly poor descriptions, wrong directions (being told to turn left when it's painfully obvious that right is the correct way, and vice versa happens in most of the walks), lack of distance perception etc etc.

Really, don't buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't forget to take your map! 9 May 2012
We've only done five of the walks so far but three of them have been blighted by dreadful directions.

On one occasion we'd finally got back on track and were enjoying our egg sandwiches in an orchard near Brenchley, when another couple came along clutching the very same book and cursing it out loud!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed maps, good information 7 July 2012
Of the 50 walks, 40 are covered with maps and 10 are described without the aid of maps, which is slightly disappointing. The only other criticism I have is the lack of any walks along the south side of the river Thames where there are many fascinating public footpaths that I know which explore the Kent side of the river.

That aside the book is an easily pocketable guide, each route map having a description of how to get to the starting point and parking instructions near to the start. Other information includes distance and estimated walk time, the gradient covered (in feet/metres), path type, public toilets along the route, and dog friendliness for those taking one. The walks are generally circular, thus avoiding back-tracking on previous ground, and there's information on where to eat and drink, plus notes on what to look out for and visit while you're on the walk, such as points of historical interest.

Very useful also is the inclusion of the relevant OS Explorer map for each walk, which I would always recommend taking so that detailed landmarks can be observed. For reference, the Explorer maps required to cover all 50 walks are:

OS 125 Romney Marsh
OS 136 High Weald
OS 137 Ashford
OS 138 Dover, Folkestone & Hythe
OS 148 Maidstone & the Medway Towns
OS 149 Sittingbourne & Faversham
OS 150 Canterbury & the Isle of Thanet
OS 162 Greenwich & Gravesend
OS 163 Gravesend & Rochester

The book is brief and informative, providing good directions for each on each walk combined with interesting geographical and historical facts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful little book 6 Jan. 2010
So far we have walked one of the walks (our intention is to do all 50) and there were some minor errors, one of which resulted in us setting off in totally the wrong direction at the start (should have said 'turn left out of the car park instead of 'turn right'!!) Anyway, the publishers mention in their blurb in the book that they are grateful for corrections so I will write to them in due course when we have completed a few more of the walks.

Handy size for taking on the walks.
