Ten Favourite Walks

Walk 6: Scotney Castle and Bewl Water

The path north of the chicken runs at Combwell Farm has been diverted.  The section of the route AB shown in black has been extinguished and the section CB shown in pink has been created.  When emerging from the wood at point C ("Emerge from..." at bottom of first column of route description) walkers should, instead of continuing forward, turn right and follow the new path between the wood and a fence then cross a short section of field to re-enter the wood at point B.  From here follow the directions in the guide: "Follow yellow waymarks through wood..."

 

Walk 10: Emmetts Garden and French Street

The most northerly part of the route, shown on the map, goes along a short section of lane.  Although walkers have used the lane without problems for many years, there has been a recent report of walkers being challenged when doing so.  The lane is one of many "white lanes" shown on OS maps whose status is a grey area (hence in part the Ramblers' current "Don't Lose Your Way" campaign to get as many as possible added to the definitive map).  The only alternative is to continue downhill into Brasted and turn left then left again up Chart Lane which is quite busy with several bends and so not very suitable for walkers.  In the circumstances you may prefer to avoid this otherwise splendid route.
