Walks

Linda Harrison, who organises the Guided Health Walks starting from Faversham Library every Wednesday as well as U3A walks, has kindly agreed to lead walks for Faversham Footpaths Group too.  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 15 December, meeting at 10.00am outside the Guildhall.  The walk will be about five and a half miles, lasting about two and a half hours.  We will walk along the Creek to Nagden and then on to Broom Street, returning along the Creek to Faversham.  Most of the paths are in reasonably good condition but there are some muddy areas and large puddles ill the Nagden stretch.

Our previous walk 

Our previous walk took place on Sunday 17 November.

20 of us enjoyed a very pleasant circular walk, starting at the Guildhall and then heading up the Brogdale Road and into the countryside via Whitehall and back round through Badgin Wood, returning to Faversham along Vicarage Road.  Although some of the paths were muddy and slippery, we were spared any rain.

Some photos from the walk are below:
