Start from Adisham train station and head south westerly toward Adisham village. Just before you go under the railway bridge, pick up the footpath on the right hand side of the road, running parallel with the farmer's field on your right. At the end of this path you meet up with the road, having negotiated a difficult 4 foot decent, use the branches to assist you down. Turn right at the road, and head north toward Bossington Farm, and take a minute to take in the buildings and the landscape, it's amazing along this stretch. Don't make our mistake and head through the farm, instead, just before is a footpath sign (which we should have seen, if we'd kept our attention on the route and not the countyside views) which leads you to the right of farm buildings, and then up a very well maintained path toward Wingham Well, where you pick-up the road, head right and about 200 yards take a left up another footpath on to Wingham. Head north through Wingham and take in the unmistakable aroma of Selmar, the Indian restaurant. Keep heading north through the village and notice how the village has not changed in years, it eally is like stepping back in time. Take the left turning coming out of Wingham up Broomhill and then on to Little Wenderton Farm. Follow the road round and take the footpath west through the woodlands toward Frognall. Head over Deadmill Bridge and turn left along side of the River Nailbourne, heading towards Wickhambreaux, then follow the road to Ickham and then on to Littlebourne. Stop at The Evenhill pub for lunch, and in the afternoon, head north, out of Littlebourne, turn left toward Woolton Farm, and then follow path back to Bekesbourne, where, if you have enough time, pop in to the Unicorn pub, for a quick half before catching the train at Bekesbourne.
