The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) has just published a new walk around Shoreham.

From Hops to Lavender explores the rolling hills and deep valleys of the Darent Valley. Discover how the lie of the land – its slopes, rivers and the rocks beneath your feet – has shaped this rich landscape and how farming has changed over the centuries.

The walks have been created to explore some of the county’s lesser-known corners and uncover its surprising history and geography. This walk was created in partnership with local farmer William Alexander.

The walks are suitable for all ages and abilities, free to download and self-guided so you can do them whenever you want
