Franks Lane closed

Walkers from London will find the River Darent is running high along the valley from Dartford.

A crucial section of Franks Lane between Horton Kirby and Farningham is closed due to flooding.

Even the alternative triangular footpath diversion is also flooded.

On arriving at the bridge in Franks Lane check to see if the ‘road closed’ sign is still displayed on the far side. If so do not cross the bridge but turn right to walk up the hill past Franks Hall gates (left) to the main road.

Turn left to follow the pavement, for much of the way set back from the traffic, to the roundabout outside Farningham. Continue ahead downhill to reach the village main street by the Chequers pub.
