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 Saturday 27 July. We will be meeting at 10.00am outside the Guildhall.  We will be walking out along the Creek to Nagden and then cutting across to the coast path, round to Seasalter and then back via Graveney.  The walk, which will be led by Brian Caffarey on this occasion, is about 8/9 miles and should take about three and a half hours.   If you haven’t walked this route you may want to do so now before the proposed Cleve Hill Solar Park destroys much of the pleasure of following it!

The following walk, led by Linda, will be on the morning of Sunday 11 August.

Our previous walk 

Our previous walk took place on Saturday 29 June, when Brian  led 11 of us on a circular walk in Kings Wood, Challock.  It was a very hot day but, by a mixture of map reading and good fortune (!), we managed to keep in the woodland shade for much of the time.
