We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

18 Jun 2021 Spring

I struggled with this route and tried to walk in 2 stages. Maidstone to Langley and then Langley /Chart Sutton to Headcorn but only got as far as Weald of Kent Golf course before I lost the route as not clearly signed across field. I was 2 miles short of Headcorn and could have walked on lanes the last section if I had time.
The First section from Maidstone through Mote Park is straightforward. Overall the route was ok for walkers however there were some very overgrown sections and a section through wood after crossing field from St Nicholas Church was a right of way (from what I could see) but at photo 4 there was a sign on a tree saying private land so I diverted and around Otham and then regained the route then again was stopped by edge of Bearsted Football Ground in Otham due to route blocked for housebuilding site.
I then regained route again crossing A274 at Langley to an overgrown path again next to another building site. Eventually got to Langley Loch and turned left towards Sutton Road and Church some way away and then stopped first section before Norton Court(also near Warmlake Road). The next section from Chart Sutton area across fields and then turning left towards Sutton Valence was reasonable walking. Care needed crossing A274 road into Sutton Valence ( lovely views) Steeps steps down from upper part of Sutton Valence and then below castle there was a step and very overgrown path ( very wet at the time ) Dropped down by fruit farm and very sticky ground towards Heniker Lane which I managed to follow around Weald of kent GOlf Course and then finally lost definitive route and ran out of time just after the Golf Course. Route not suitable for wheelers, overgrown in summer and not well enough marked with divert section ( no public access ? ) Otham and temporarily blocked section ( house building Bicknor Wood ?) . I would not recommend without adjustments and being aware of difficulty with signage. For experienced walkers only and needed to use road sections.
Good points are lovely view from Sutton Valence and quieter area below Sutton Valence.
