There was a climbable but locked farm gate off the road at Mascalls Court Farm TQ 6774 4380, perhaps to prevent GPX-misled traffic for the housing being built just behind (on land they sold!). In practice it was fine though, traffic was very quiet and kept a good distance away when passing, but traffic elsewhere was pretty quiet this weekend, could be a Coronation traffic abberation. Otherwise, one locked farm gate which I hope is temporary....
The path shown between Paddock Wood and Matfield does not exist....

Flat and sometimes muddy but ok in boots except short bit through orchard tractor churn, north of Five Oak Green, where it nearly came over!...

It's fine as way of walking from Paddock Wood to Maidstone - the paths are easy to find, it's fairly direct and much the way is on flat, gravel or tarmac surfaces....
Also, the path onwards from near the School towards Paddock Wood is in very poor condition; you get a prize for finding the start [it's a small unmarked door within a large gate] and when you get to a large ditch there's no bridge [photo attached]. My Group had to abandon path walking at that stage and walk along relatively busy roads into Paddock Wood. I've reported the footpath problems to KCC but note that there are uncleared entries back to 2008!...
This is a reasonable route with some pleasant sections by the river Medway and in the higher ground above Yalding.( Walked in late summer /autumn)....
Walked the route Marden to Paddock Wood the Route is blocked with locked gates through private properties, way markers and access is sketchy in a lot of places....
