Approaching Harrietsham from the South, you pass Fairborne Mill (1) with its accompanying house and Oast and come to the village centre at The Roebuck Inn (2). Where the Indian Restaurant now stands there used to be Ye Wayfarers Shoppe (3). Turning right into East Street you will see Dial House (4) on the left, Old Bell Farm (5) on the right and beyond it the Almshouses (6). Walk up Rectory Lane to the A20 and opposite is the Old School (7). Go up Church Road to the Lakes turning left into Woodlands Walk for a fine view of the Boat House (8): Then follow the road round to the Church of St John the Baptist (9) before taking the footpath cutting up across the fields behind, to reach Pilgrims Way above which stands Stede Court (10).
