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 9 February.  We will meet at 10.00am outside the Guildhall for a walk out through the Gunpowder Walks and Oare Meadow to Luddenham and Uplees.  The walk is about six miles and should take two and a half to three hours.

Walks have also been arranged for Sunday 8 March and Sunday 22 March.  More details to follow.

Our previous walk 

Our previous walk took place on Sunday 5 January.

Nineteen of us, and one dog, set off from outside the Guildhall in reasonable weather. We made our way to Ospringe via the King George V playing fields and then to Ospringe Church and on to Painter’s Forstal.  We then headed to Pawley Farm and Hanslett Lane before arriving back in  Faversham via the Brogdale Road.

A copy of the route we followed is at the bottom of this page.
