River Len – it’s a seven!!!

We found this walk quite by accident but what a great walk it is! If you’re heading out of Maidstone it’s on the A20 on the right hand side, about 150 yards along from the BP garage and Marino’s fish and chip shop. Just click here for the map.

You follow the footpath alongside a driveway and then finally the path opens up to reveal a massive field with the River Len at the bottom. There are footpaths straight opposite towards Otham but we went across the field diagonally.

At the bottom corner of the field there is path which follows the river and you eventually come out again to a big recreation ground and a lake.

In the winter and the snow it’ll look stunning and in the summer there’s the river to cool down in. If you’re feeling really ambitious you can walk all the way to Mote park and back into the centre of Maidstone.

Bryon rating: two paws out of five, I like it nice and steady and got muddy paws – liked the views though

Oscar rating: five paws out of five, it was too cold for a swim today but I do enjoy a dip. It was a really different walk and we got a saveloy on the way home x
