Shelterbelts (windbreaks)
A windbreak or shelterbelt is a plantation usually made up of one or more rows of trees or shrubs planted in such a manner as to provide shelter from the wind and to protect soil from erosion. They are commonly planted around the edges of fields on farms. Windbreaks are also planted to help keep snow from drifting onto roadways. Other benefits include providing habitat for wildlife and in some regions the trees are harvested for wood products.
A further use for a shelterbelt is to screen a farm from a main road or motorway. This improves the farm landscape by reducing the visual incursion of the motorway, mitigating noise from the traffic and providing a safe barrier between farm animals and the road
Tunbridge Wells Circular Walk (TWCW)

There is no official start or end to the walk. The walk visits Southborough, Pembury, Frant, Eridge, Groombridge and Speldhurst as well as Eridge Rocks and Harrison Rocks. It is well signed along its entire length.
