I have selected someup and coming walks, for you.
All of the walks are with the South Bank Walking group. The South Bank Walking Group, are part of The Ramblers.
I don’t attend all of these walks but aim to get on a couple a month. I will generally select 3 or 4 up and coming walks monthly. At present our walks are planned up until December.
The last walk I led was in the Seaford area. It was a bit of a challenge! see my June Blog for details.Please note I will no longer be leading urban walks with a Meet Up Group. I don’t have the time to organise that right now.

This is an easy walk entirely flat following the little known marshy coast of North Kent.

We follow the path along Faversham Creek to the Saxon Shore Way and further on to the sea wall (glorious views) and on all the way to Whitstable, which has many quaint corners and is famous for its oysters. Once we leave Faversham there are no toilets!
