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.

Our next walk will be on Sunday 14 January 2018.  Details will be posted here nearer the time.

Our previous walk

On Sunday 19 November Linda led a walk from the George Inn at Newnham.  Here is Trevor Payne’s account of the walk:

” There were 16 of us on the walk this morning on what was a wonderfully bright and sunny day. From Newnham we took a path that ran between the houses to the north of the George PH. There was a steep climb to the ridge from which there were very good views over the valley. We went past Champion Court and Sharsted Court both with impressive topiary. After going through woods and open fields, we took Down Court Road past Palace Farm behind Doddington. Then we came back passing the church of the Beheading of St John the Baptist, through the grounds of Doddington Place. Then through Sharsted Wood and down to Newnham at the southern end of the village. Throughout the walk the autumn colours had been fantastic.”
