Saturday Walk Frant to Tunbridge Wells via Goombridge

Frant to Tunbridge Wells via Goombridge T=swc.19.b

Length: 13 miles (21 km). Five hours 15 minutes walking time. (there is a 9.3 mile option)

This is an enjoyable walk and the Spa Valley Railway will be running  (Goombridge 1620 to Tunbridge Wells). The choice of how far to walk is after lunch. I've always done the main walk start (5a), and not found it too bad.

Trains: Get the 1004 Hastings train from Charing Cross, (London Bridge 1011, East Croydon 1026) arriving Frant 1115. Return trains from Tunbridge Wells are xx09 & xx39. CDR to Frant.

Lunch: at the Nevill Crest and Gun (01892-864209) in Eridge Green; it has a large garden and serves very good food all day from noon

The initial bit is along a short section of winding road with limited visibility and no pavement. There's not too much traffic but it's fast moving when it comes. You can avoid this by doing the alternative start from Tunbridge Wells – see Tunbridge Wells Circular.
