That is, the valley of the River Darent, which rises on the greensand ridge to the south of the North Downs near Sevenoaks and flows into the Thames Estuary at Dartford. See the description from the book’s rear cover.
The book also includes short sections on notable residents of the valley, such as Octavia Hill, founder of the National Trust, the artist Samuel Palmer, the historian Edward Hasted and the engineer Richard Trevithick, better known for his steam engines in Cornish mines.
The separate route-map section is stapled into the centre of the main pamphlet and is clearly intended to be removed and used on the walk, as it is printed on glazed paper which would probably resist the odd shower.
The Kent County Council website says the Guide is no longer available.
