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 3 June. It will start at 10.00am from the car park next to Selling Primary School and will explore the Selling/Sheldwich area. It will be just under five miles in length and should take about two and a half hours.
Our previous walk
Our previous walk took place on Sunday 20 May. 8 people enjoyed a walk, in fine weather, starting at Teynham Station and then heading to Conyer and along the coastal path, turning inland to Uplees and then across the field to Oare and Faversham. We saw and heard a cuckoo in the Conyer area and heard several nightingales singing there too. Corn buntings were also around between Conyer and Uplees. There were lots of green-veined white butterflies flying plus a few holly blues and small heaths. May blossom festooned the hedgerows. 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?
