Description

 The route initially shares with Spoke 2-3 link  until Nash Lane 1.7, then climbs Jackass Lane to Keston Church 3, where the track merges with the more direct but busier route of Spoke 2E from Hayes until Downe 4.3. Fork R for Down House 4.7, Darwin’s home for 40 years. Along with Shakespeare's birthplace and Newton's Woolsthorpe Manor, historically the most important homes in the UK? It is well worth a visit, in any event...

L on Berry's Hill 5.9 and a short descent before R on Berry’s Green Road; thereafter a steady climb via Buckhurst Road to Arc 5 upper and A233 Westerham-Croydon Road at Westerham Heights, the highest point in Greater London. The whole spoke has been in LB Bromley, though few sections of the network are as rural.
