BASSETT'S FARM ROCKS


The most northerly sandstone crag is hidden away in some of southwest Kent's most stunning countryside. The main attractions here are the clean-cut red-streaked Ken's Wall and its neighbour Hypothesis Wall, with their vertical testpieces and finger intensive traverses. Across the field are some smaller rocks which are best avoided as the rock is very soft.
