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.
