Kemsing Down

UK»England»Kent»Kemsing Down

Kemsing Down: The Reserve is in two main parts, separated by an ancient cart track (now a public footpath) running over the Downs from north to south. The eastern section, known as Green Hill, supports chalk downland rich in flowering plants including nine species of orchid. To the west is a mixture of ancient woodland, chalk downland and ex-arable land, which is developing into species-rich grassland.

The site is ideal for walking and several footpaths cross the reserve, although many of these are steep and therefore unsuitable for disabled visitors. The North Downs Way, which runs for 153 miles between Farnham and Dover, passes through the site, as does one of Sevenoaks District Council's waymarked circular walking routes. Horse riding and cycling are permitted only on the byway at the western edge of the site.
