Walking in Kent: 40 Walks Throughout the County (Cicerone Guide)Walking in Kent: v. 1 (County)Walking in Kent: v. 2 (County)Walking in Kent: v. 1 (County)

These books are not quite perfect. In particular, the maps are a bit too simplified and the instructions are often more interesting than useful. Having said that, in every other respect they are wonderful productions by a real enthusiast for Kent and for the outdoors. Use them as a source of ideas and suggestions and take a good OS map with you, or allow enough time so if you miss a turning it doesn't matter. You were probably too busy admiring the view anyway.

Forty walks for very little money, in the most interesting, the most varied, and the most picturesque county in the whole of Britain. What more could you want? Buy it!

I have done several of the walks in this book, and by and large it is good of it's type. Some issues where footpaths have been rerouted, but that is almost inevitable when considering the length of time it takes to bring a book to publication. I would advise the use of an OS map, as these walks do take you fairly off the beaten track, and it's not always easy to get back on if you do miss the way.

I'd buy it again, and recommend it to a friend, although probably not a complete novice looking for a stroll.

I bought this book some time ago and have done many of the walks included. Instructions and background information is clear about each walk. Walk lengths range from 5 to 9 miles.

My favourite walks from this book include Sandwich, Newington (in the blossom season), Chilham and Tenterden. The Tenterden walk includes a ride on the steam train and can be planned to finish up with a cream tea at the end. I look forward to trying out some of the other walks.

I would thoroughly recommend this book

I bought this book ages ago and it LOOKS pretty good. However,that's all I can say as I have yet to actually do any of the walks therin.You know how it is,you mean to get out of bed on Sunday morning and hike around in Kent, but somehow you never quiet get around to it. Maybe next year.
