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.

08 Aug 2021 Summer

This is a reasonable route from my experience (for
confident walkers but not suitable for wheelers of beginnners and route difficult to follow between Linton and Marden.
I walked this route in 2 sections in July and August 2021. The first part was from Maidstone to
Loose which is pavement and path walking ( some sections suitable for cycling/wheeling) to Loose where you need to follow the Loose Greenway which drop down towards Loose Village . After this you need to climb back out of the valley towards Coxheath and after crossing the main road the goes through Coxheath you drop down though Fruit farms ( the paths are overgrown and hard to follow) to reach Vanity Lane (difficult with out a good large scale map). This brings you to Linton Hill. The second part of the walk from Linton starting at St Nicholas Church on Linton Hill to Marden is more difficult to follow as in mid- summer the paths are starting to get overgrown with brambles and path markings are not particularly clear. I lost the route after crossing Beult river and had to road walk to reorientate myself to reach Marden via Pattenden Lane. ( also the walk took longer than anticipated as it is not that direct due to dropping down the hill beyond Linton and needing to cross the Beult at the particular bridge.
