Description

Starting at Knockholt Church on Arc 5 high descend steep Sundridge Hill, joining 1.1 Arc 5 low, but continuing straight on 1.8 off-road to Sundridge. After crossing A25 2.5 it’s a steady climb to Ide Hill 4.8 (passing Emmett’s Gardens NT 4.1 ).

The route turns east following the Greensand ridge to Bayley’s Hill 7.1. If your destination is Knowle and Spinoff 5 northwards, continue a mile east to Gracious Lane and the summit of Hubbard’s Hill; otherwise, double back R and down, zigzag L 7.3 very steep descent with speed bumps on an initially metalled Wickhurst Road bridleway* to Sevenoaks Weald 8.6 (* alternatively, especially on descent, use the longer but smoother option of public roads – Bayley’s Hill, Bowzell and Long Barn Roads).
