About the walk:
Known as the Capital of the Kentish Weald, Cranbrook was once an important centre for the woolen industry. The village contains many interesting buildings dating from the 15th and 19th century - many displaying the weatherboarding characteristic of traditional Wealden buildings. The restored Union Mill dates from 1814 and is the largest working mindmill in England. This popular route also offers the chance to see the nearby village of Sissinghurst and visit Sissinghurst Castle Gardens.
