Bus:
There is a bus service (No. 12 or 812) from the Maidstone depot at the Chequers Centre, to Sutton Valence, which is a 1 mile walk from the prison. From Headcorn the No. 12 bus operates in the opposite direction. Walking from Sutton Valence leave by taking the left turning at the cross roads in the village centre (as you are facing downhill). Follow this road out of the village, past the Queen's Head, the Post Office, assorted shops and the Swan. Continue for approximately 1 mile out of the village and, where the road bends to the left and uphill, the Prison gates will be straight ahead. This will take approximately 20 - 30 minutes. (The bus is not the advised way to travel to the prison due to the long walk both ways.)
