What 3 Words Map Code: flips.easy.rests


You will note that the bear in the window is holding a tree with a stone. 

The name “Chislehurst” is derived from the Saxon words cisel, “gravel”, and hyrst, “wooded hill”.

Walk to the end of Queens Passage and turn left into Queens Road, right into Park Road, cross on the zebra crossing outside The Gordon Arms to the Belmont Parade shops. Crossing over Woodside Avenue, turn right into Belmont Lane (the Co-Op is opposite). Continue along Belmont Lane till you reach a footpath opposite Edgebury. You can now either

  • Walk along the footpath that runs adjacent to Belmont Open Space, past the allotments until you come to a large opening to your left, walk through and bear left to a large oak with a paw print post close by.


  • Walk along the grass edge keeping the hedgerow to your right, past two large oaks till you reach the third.

You are now in Belmont Open Space with an active Friends Group.
