About this book
This is the third collection of walks in the Garden of England selected by Kev Reynolds. It includes the best of the walks from the previous two volumes (now out of print), as well as some recently discovered routes in all corners of the county. There's plenty to appeal to both family strollers and determined ramblers, and each route has been rewalked and carefully revised. Come walking in Kent and you'll discover some of Britain's finest non-mountain landscapes, as well as hidden architectural treasures and historic villages. But best of all is the surprise of long unhindered views and big skies over Kent, where Britain begins. The features include: 40 walks, with variations; easy-to-follow route descriptions; O.S. mapping; background information; and full colour illustrations.
