Hnsill Lane

Walk down Hensill Lane, which is at The Moor end of Hawkhurst. It is a no through road, so a quiet road to walk down. There are lots of nearby roads where you can park.

Pass the gates to a house on your right, and continue to follow the lane round to the left. There is a stone footpath sign on the corner

Just before the end of the track, the footpath goes up a steap bank on your right, This is marked by another stone footpath sign.

Continue to follow the footpath signs across several fields. The path is well worn as it is used by many local walkers. It was very muddy in places.

The path goes through a gap in the hedge.

You will then come to the orchards. I turned round at this point, however the footpath eventually comes out onto Delmonden Lane.
