Footpaths & Walks

There are many interesting walks around Chislehurst, in addition to the paths over the Commons, Petts Wood, St Paul’s Cray and Hawkswood, there is also the circular footpath around Scadbury, much used by joggers and dog walkers.
We need to ensure that our local footpaths are used by everyone and kept open for future use. Click here to find to see the various public footpaths within our borough.
As to guided walks, Roy Hopper has prepared one which passes much of the most interesting architecture in the village (click here to see the walk and map). There is also a circular walk now available covering over thirty points of interest around Chislehurst- (see our publications).
Mary Holt’s study can be read like a walk, as can Darryl Spurgeon’s popular book, Discover Chislehurst. (this needs to be linked to the shop)

Social Media Hashtag: #chiswatch

This social media link was launched so that we can bring together knowledge of the true wealth of flora and fauna right across Chislehurst.  It is a window into what can be seen, when and where. How well it is doing and, perhaps more importantly, what has disappeared and how we can attract it back.  So, if you can help in any way, from detailing what is in your garden to a more widespread search across Chislehurst – we would love to have your input.
