A circular walk from the historic hamlet of Nash in Bromley.
The 4 mile walk uses a series of public footpaths, country lanes and a section of the waymarked London Loop. On the way you'll pass Baston Manor, Hayes Common and Keston Common.

At the common you pick up the London Loop and follow it south east past Baston Manor to visit Keston Common and windmill. The common includes a series of picturesque lakes with more nice woodland trails.
You continue south past Keston Court and the interesting site of a Roman Mausoleum. You then turn north west to return to Nash.
