Octavia Hill Trails
Toys Hill, Kent
Octavia Hill was a social reformer, philanthropist, artist, writer and co-founder of the National Trust. These two trails celebrate her life, passing through the countryside where she was born and lived, and which inspired her mission to provide open spaces for everyone to enjoy. The four and six mile routes can be done separately, but when combined they form a 10-mile figure-of-eight trail of varied terrain that is great for stretching your legs and building stamina. As a reward for your efforts, you’ll be able to enjoy spectacular views over the Weald of Kent, and celebrate Octavia's life passing Crockham Hill village and the church where she is buried, up to Mariners Hill and on past Chartwell, former home of Winston Churchill.
