Walks

Linda Harrison, who organises the Guided Health Walks starting from Faversham Library every Wednesday, has kindly agreed to lead walks for Faversham Footpaths Group.  Members, their family and friends and those thinking of joining the Group are all welcome to take part.  There is no charge.

Our next walk will be on Sunday 22 July, starting at 10 o’clock from outside the Guildhall.  The walk will take us to the Upleees and Luddenham Marshes area.  It will be about five and a half miles and should take about two and a half hours.

Our previous walk

Our previous walk, led by Brian Caffarey, took place on Sunday 1 July.  10 people enjoyed a splendid walk, in glorious weather, starting at Selling station and walking back to Faversham via Gosmere.  Butterflies were particularly in evident, with a number of marbled whites seen plus green-veined whites, commas and meadow browns.  Birds included a couple of buzzards, kestrel, skylarks, green woodpecker and whitethroat. Chicory provided a splash of blue along some field edges, along with some red poppies, and a couple of fields of echium.  Some photos are below.

Walking in the Faversham area

We hope to add useful guides to walking in the Faversham area to this page.  However, a good place to start online is: www.explorekent,org/walking.  Eight circular walks, showcasing the best of local Kent produce – the Faversham Food Trails – can be downloaded from www.visitfaversham.org   If you’re interested in Faversham’s fascinating history, why not join one of the Faversham Society’s Town History Walks?  Details are available on www.favershamtownwalks.org.uk
