Past Lullingstone Castle and the Roman Villa – we took SonnyHen here years ago when he was doing the Romans at primary school. It has a beautiful mosaic the downside is its now £6.20 per adult.
Up the hill (it’s a steep one)
to get the beautiful view of this mid 19th Century 9 arch red brick viaduct crossing the valley
Down the hill into Eynsford village – it was packed with people sitting on the grass outside the pub. We turned left into an appropriately named lane
On to Farningham – passing these Jacobs sheep
Unfortunately it’s not a circular walk unless you want to walk along the road!! to back along Sparepenny Lane.
There is a castle ruin on the way – Eynsford Castle built in 11th century – it’s free to have a look round, but the entrance is across the valley and over the river.
Back along the river towards Lullingstone passing these Highland cattle - I've been visiting Eynsford for over 20years and there have always been Highland cattle in the meadow along Lullingstone Lane.
It’s a gentle walk mostly on the same level – we didn’t need to go up the hill but the view made it worthwhile. Burnt a few more calories, enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine - it's free to walk.
