Walk Report

This is an anti-clockwise walk and starts from Sissinghurst Church. Initially it heads north east to reach the first of the castles on the route, Sissinghurst Castle. It then turns south west to reach Cranbrook, from where it joins up with the High Weald Landscape Trail to head westwards to reach Scotney Castle. From here, the route heads south and then east before turning south east towards Hawkhurst. It then crosses the county border and joins up with the Sussex Border Path to reach Bodiam Castle. Heading north east, it crosses Kent Water and back into Kent before turning north to reach the village of Sandhurst. Continuing northwards, the walk rejoins the High Weald Landscape Trail and passes through the grounds of Benenden School before returning to Sissinghurst.
