About the Author

A lifelong passion for the countryside in general, and mountains in particular, drives Kev's desire to share his sense of wonder and delight in the natural world through his writing, guiding, photography and lecturing. Spending several months each year among various high mountain regions researching guidebooks, makes him The Man with the World's Best Job; a title he aims to keep by remaining active for another 100 years at least. Kev has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Cicerone since the 1970s, producing walking and trekking guides to the Pyrenees, Alps and Himalaya, as well as walking guides for Kent, Sussex and the Cotswolds and he has several more books in the pipeline. A frequent contributor to outdoor magazines, he also writes and illustrates brochures for national tourist authorities and travel companies. When not away in the mountains, Kev lives with his wife in a small cottage among what he calls 'the Kentish Alps' with unrestricted walking country on the doorstep. But he also travels throughout Britain during the winter months to share his love of the places he writes about through a series of lectures. Check him out on

Format: Paperback
I've done over 30 of the 40 of the walks in this book, several more than once, and have mostly enjoyed them all. My book is in a very sorry weather-beaten state now ! The walks range from 3-8 miles and are well chosen and distributed around Kent (though the majority in the mid and west of the county) so you can take your pick depending on your mood, location, price of petrol (!) and of course the weather. The book is pocket size too which is useful.

I have got lost on more than one occassion due to slightly vague instructions and the hand drawn maps can lack detail, but mostly the directions are good enough. I take an OS map and compass with me on most of the walks, but don't use either very often. Later versions of this book have the OS map printed (very useful!) rather than Kev's hand drawn efforts!

I have several different walk books (my other favourites being the "Adventurous Walks in..." series by Raymond Hugh/Morning Mist) and this is definitely one of the best and has given me and my various friends/girlfriends several (cheap) great days out. I can also recommend Kent: Walks (Pathfinder Guide) which I've reviewed also.
