About this course

Join a series of guided walks which will introduce you to the wonderful world of the Weald. The walks are circular and 4 - 5.5 miles in length, usually within 18 miles of the main centre. They will help you to improve your fitness and broaden your knowledge of the local area. By the end of the course you will have increased your knowledge of where you live, be somewhat fitter, and will hopefully have made some good friends. You will need to make your own arrangements to get to each start point, which will usually be within 35 minutes of Tunbridge Wells. Sessions begin promptly at 10:00 am. Full details and a list of all the walks will be sent to you before your first class. However, if you enrol after the start date please contact the centre for the Walks List. At the end of the course students should feel more fit (as measured by a simple 'puff' test), and know more about the flora, fauna, history and topography of the Weald.
Your learning will be monitored under four main headings:
Local history and topography
The environment (including meterology, land and landscape management)
Public Rights of Way law
Natural History

How will I be taught?

The pace varies to suit the pace of the group and the terrain. Students are provided with a detailed description of each walk as well as notes about local history and points of interest. If you have a disability and think it may affect your learning in the classroom, or using any of our other services, please speak to us in confidence as soon as possible. We will discuss options with you and do our best to provide the support you would like.
To assist us in providing a safe and healthy environment for you to exercise you will be asked to complete a Confidential Health Questionnaire. Your progress will be monitored through a Learning record and your own personal learning diary or fitness log.

What do I need to bring with me?

Good walking boots or shoes which support the ankle. Wellington boots are not recommended and neither are jeans. You will need to dress for any kind of weather. It is always advisable to take a drink, especially in hot weather, and you may wish to bring a snack. Please note that many car parks, including the National Trust and the Forestry Commission, now charge for parking.

What can I do next?

You could progress to other walking courses with KAES or other providers or longer walks with the Ramblers Association or the Long Distance Walkers Association.
