The Greensand Way is a one hundred and eight mile walk that connects Hamstreet in Kent to Haslemere in Surrey.
Egerton is a wonderful village sat atop the Greensand Ridge and the walk will take you through it.
It is one of those villages that retains a little mystique. Known but not overplayed, large enough to be a great community without losing its heart. It is an active village and yet a quiet one, accessible yet found on purpose.
It has pre and primary schooling, a variety of active interest groups and it is somewhere you can be involved to a level that suits you.
The centre of the village is home to a Grade I Listed church, St James The Great, pretty rows of cottages and The George, ‘a pub with a friendly welcome’.
Beautiful countryside is all around and it is easy to reach local train stations; Pluckley, Charing and Lenham spring to mind as options. It is also easy to get to important places like Canterbury, Ashford, Maidstone and onto the M20 from here.
Headcorn, Staplehurst and beyond to Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and to Sevenoaks are options that add a wealth of things for you to do; not to mention exploring rural walks along the greensand ridge. You can walk to Pluckley or just find routes that will loop around the local area.
