Squerryes Park



It took us a while to find this hillfort, it's very well hidden!!!! Take the footpath from Westerham centre starting from Water Lane. Follow this walled path down over a stream & into a field with a steep hill in front of you. Climb the hill & climb the stile, then keep going straight until you reach what could almost be a Scottish Glen. Go down into this & turn right. Cross the next stream & turn left to follow a track through a field. When you get to the stile at the other end of the field you will see a tree covered hill. That's it!! It has been covered with small pine trees & shrubs which may have once been an ornamental garden from Sqerries Court but has since been used as (I think) a breeding area for Pheasants. Remains of pens still exist. It's not an impressive site but the walk there is really nice, especially the "Glen" & the remains of what may have been a mill at one time. There is one interesting point to note. On the top of the first hill you come to is what appears to be a Tumulus. Don't be fooled. It's an Air Raid Shelter!!!!!!! Posted by vinto2
