Walks: Biddenden's Red Lion
Distance 2 miles. The walk is completely off-road and fairly flat and goes through countryside to the north and west of the large village church.

The walk starts and finishes at The Red Lion inn on the A262.

1. From the pub go towards the church follow the path that goes to the right of the church. Cross the churchyard and take the path as it goes between the fences. Cross the patch of grass and trees, and continue on the concrete path ahead.

2. Follow the meadow's right edge that of the next three fields. Go past the large pond and over a stile at the end of the field. Bear slightly left towards the far end. Go through a gap in the hedge at the far end of the field, over a plank bridge and along the right edge of another field until you get to another pond.

3. Turn left sharply at the end of the pond and walk along the top end of the next field. Keep to the right as you cross the next two fields.

4. Turn sharp left again at the marker post and go through a gap in the tall hedge at the end of the meadow. Cross the stream and go diagonally across a large field, aiming for the roofs of the houses in the distance.

5. Once you have crossed the field go over a stile on the left and along the right edge of a field for about 50 yards. Immediately after a small pond go over a stile and diagonally across a small field aiming for the church.

6. After the stile, turn left for a few yards and walk between metal barriers and along the road between the houses. At the end of the road turn left and you will end up back at the churchyard.
