A Spooky Walk around Penshurst, Kent

A Spooky Walk around Penshurst, Kent

Distance:            6 miles

Ghostly Rating        ****

Route:                Penshurst - Chiddingstone - Penshurst

Map:                OS Explorer 147

Start/ Parking:        Penshurst village

Conditions:            This walk covers both village centres, where the going is over paths and lanes, linked by a bridleway which is well surfaced, but can be slippery in very wet weather.

Refreshments:        There is a pub in Penshurst and another in Chiddingstone, both offering meals. Penshurst Place offers a small cafe.

This walk links two of the more charming villages in Kent, both of which are dominatedby historic houses. The families that once lived in these grand houses were, of course, friendly with each other. That friendship has left its phantom mark on this walk for the realationship between the two led to one of the hauntings that make this a more than usually spinechilling ramble.
