'A coppiced ancient woodland which was once the hunting ground of King Henry VIII, is now the site of an exciting arts project [which used to be] managed by Stour Valley Arts. It features sculptures which draw on the natural landscape and materials and creates art which works with the countryside rather than imposing upon it. A three mile green route not only takes in the art works, but also reveals the full beauty of the wood itself and links into other walks including the shorter "brown route".'

'A walk (or run) between a series of unmanned checkpoints. Each has a grid reference together with a simple clue the answers to which you collect on the way round. This not only lets the organisers know you have followed the route(!) but also adds to the enjoyment. The clues are given in sequence and your time starts after you have had time to plot your route on the map ... Bring compass, map case, pencil and maps. You need to be able to read a map! Late finishers will need a torch.' Usually Early January.

'Here are a set of 7 delightful circular walks in the beautiful High Weald countryside, which start and finish in Tenterden.
