Crossover in Long Distance pathways
This short section of Pilgrim's Way is the only place where these two long distance paths cross. The Wealdway travels southwards from Gravesend to Tonbridge. The North Downs Way travels eastwards from Guildford to Dover.
North Downs Way
A long distance path in southern England. It runs from Farnham to Dover, past Godalming, Guildford, Dorking, Merstham, Otford and Rochester, along the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Kent Downs AONB. East of Boughton Lees, the path splits in two, the northern section running via Canterbury and the southern via Wye. The two sections of the path reunite at Dover. The northern route is 211 km long, and the southern route 201 km, the total length of the North Downs Way being 246 km.
The pathway is mixed in that it varies throughout its length from footpath status to bridleway, byway and road. Some 19% of the Way follows roads, though 75% of those are minor lanes. It is marked by a acorn. See TQ6561 : Crossover in Long Distance pathways.

The Wealdway
The Wealdway, is a long distance path that runs from Gravesend, Kent on the Thames estuary, to the A259 at Eastbourne, in East Sussex. The Wealdway was conceived in 1970 by members of the Ramblers' Association as route through the Kentish and Sussex Weald, providing a link between the routes north of the Thames and the start of the South Downs Way. It would also provide a return circuit for users of the Saxon Shore Way. Motorway Construction work and the building of the Tonbridge Flood Relief Barrier forced many changes to the original route.
It is marked by double yellow 'W's along the route. See TQ6561 : Crossover in Long Distance pathways
