The Ramblers wrote:


'The cornerstones of this 50-mile (30km) circular history walk through Kent and Sussex, inspired by King Harold's march to battle, are the National Trust properties of Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst Castle, Scotney Castle and Bateman's (hence Three Castles and an Ironmaster's House).


It's a highly original work and the well-written guidebook, with maps, black and white photos and lots of practical information, is full of interesting historical information including smugglers' tales, rebellions, industry and murders.


The route is fully accessible by bus and train and the loop around the High Weald visits Cranbrook, Lamberhurst, Burwash, Robertsbridge and Benenden.'
