If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.

By road:  From Westerham, take the B2026 up Hosey Hill and turn left past Chartwell.  At the end of Mapleton Road, turn left onto the B269 and continue to Four Elms.  At the crossroads, continue ahead onto the B2027 to Bough Beech.  Make a right and left over the railway bridge and stay on that road through Chiddingstone Causeway.  Turn right onto the B2176 (signposted "Penshurst") just after the Little Brown Jug public house, just before the top of the hill.  Continue to the top of the hill and turn right (still B2176).  Follow this road down into Penshurst and turn left at the T junction - the road will bend sharply right again, passing (on your left) the main car entrance into Penshurst Place.

Follow this road for just under 2 miles. You will pass some buildings on your right - one of which has a mini white clocktower. Just after this you reach Barden road on your right which you turn into. Unfortunately there are no road signs visible as you approach the junction so the clocktower is your best clue. Once you turn into Barden Road road you will see a blue "unsuitable for heavy goods" sign plus another blue sign stating "Peak Hours Delays at Speldhurst" - and a small sign at ground level that says Barden Road.

Follow this for just over a mile until you reach a T junction. Turn right - The George and Dragon is approx 50 yards up the road on your left. We will park in the pub car-park (as we are stopping there at the end of the walk). Please park considerately.
