• Discover Bredhurst Woods Through the Seasons

    Bredhurst Woods is an area of 600 acres of ancient woodland surrounded by chalk grassland. It is situated on the North Downs, six miles north of Maidstone (click here for directions).  It is one of the largest woods in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  The woods have been cared for by local people for hundreds of years.  Today, Bredhurst Woodland Action Group (BWAG) manage much of this unique landscape.  A walk along the winding paths of Bredhurst Woods and the adjoining chalk grassland is a feast for the senses at any time of year where you will see ancient trees, wildflowers and a variety of wildlife.  Click here to download a map of the area.  Follow the numbered waymarkers and start your own discovery of the woods.
