This walk makes its way through the land to the south of the River Eden (which feeds the Medway north of the point where the route crosses in at Ashurst), with the High Weald farther south: it is a land of old manor estates. The route has been designed to call at the two intermediate stations on the line, so there is plenty of flexibility in the choice of distance to be walked — the sections between Ashurst and Hever station, and between Cowden and Edenbridge, each run in at less than 11km. The route borrows parts of the Sussex Border Path and the Eden Valley Walk, and ends by going through the centre of Edenbridge, where end-of-walk refreshments abound.

Note — be sure that the northern limit of this walk is Edenbridge Town station. It is a 1.1km walk from Edenbridge High Street at Station Approach to Edenbridge station, on the line between Redhill and Tonbridge. Edenbridge station does not have direct services to London.
