This route is shown as starting and finishing on Sparepenny Lane in line with the ruins of Eynsford Castle, built by William de Eynsford in the 11th Century. This is at the entrance to a property named Chestnut Rise. The route takes you initially along the Darent Valley Path, with a pedestrian railway crossing point you must be careful on. Beyond the fields you will turn off right and drift up and in to Lullingstone Park golf course. You will meander through the holes, and cross one fairway, before following the paths all the way back down hill to the entrance of Lullingstone Country Park. Pass the 500 year old Lullingstone Castle on your right and then the 2000 year old Roman villa remains on your left, following the road under the railway line all the way back to Eynsford village and in to Sparepenny Lane. This is an undulating journey will some short sections on the quiet roads. The vast majority is beautiful countryside with reasonably well marked paths.
