Rambling: Markbeech to Hoath Corner, Kent

This was a lovely, quiet 9km walk, starting from The Kentish Horse inn in Markbeech, as published on AllTrails. Markbeech is notable for a tree planted in 1897 to commemorate 60 years of Queen Victoria’s reign, and a village hall built at the same time. The walk was a delightful mixture of meadows and woodland, with only short periods along roads in between. We particularly enjoyed the fine views across the Kent countryside and the huge rock at Hoath Corner, from which The Rock Inn takes its name. It must be noted that although we were following footpaths marked on the map, the trails themselves were not obvious on the ground and the gates/styles were often well-hidden at the sides of fields. Other walkers had commented that this walk was very muddy, so be warned if trying this walk other than during the summer.
