Nashenden Down Nature Reserve Guided Walk - Saturday 17th August - 14:30 - 16:30

Join us for a guided circular walk around the beautiful Nashenden Nature Reserve. Enjoy learning about the wildlife that lives there, the habitats they call home and how the land is managed for conservation.

Led by the Kent Wildlife Trust you will get behind the scenes access to areas usually unavailable to the general public. The site has grazing livestock, so all dogs must stay on the lead at all times.

Parking is on the roadside in Nashenden Farm Lane before the hamlet of Nashenden. Please do not drive up the bridleway/private road through the hamlet.

Sturdy comfortable footwear is advised and please bring your own water and refreshments. The walk is around 4 kilometres with some steep inclines and stiles.
