Standen Street / Hope House Lane. near Sandhurst
The open access is set in an orchard with old apple trees pruned to a traditional shape. Traditional orchards which are a characteristic feature of the Kentish landscape are in decline and the gnarled bark of these old trees together sections of dead wood provide for a wide range of decaying wood insects, invertebrate and bird species. The permissive access leads around the perimeter of the adjacent fields passing by a woodland edge and stream bank creating a circular walk.
