Walk description:

Scadbury Park covers 300 acres of countryside at the northern edge of the London Borough of Bromley. The estate was acquired by the Council in 1983 and is made up of extensive pasture and woodland around which runs a network of paths for public access.

You can park at Old Perry Street car park, which is right by Scadbury Park. The trail starts and ends here.

Leave car park via the Southern end (furthest from the road) and then turn left towards the picnic area. Turn left onto the tarmac road. At the end of the driveway turn a sharp left into Old Perry Street and cross the road. Turn left into a driveway, which was laid in the late 1930's and takes you back into Scadbury Park.


Additional notes:

There are no stiles or steps but you will come across 3 speed humps.

It is best to take a south direction to avoid any up hill gradients.

Scadbury park can also be reached by bus. (Bus routes R1,R11,B14,61,273,160 and 269). The nearest train stations are St Mary's Cray, Chiselhurst, Orpington, Sidcup and Petts Wood.
