A walk on the wild side takes you into our third recommended walk. Most of this walk follows the Saxon Shore Way and takes a step back into history, with much of the area being involved in the explosives industry for many years.

Take a walk on the wild side and discover one of Kent’s most beautiful wildlife havens on the doorstep of the historic market town of Faversham.

You’ll be bowled over by breath-taking views across farmland, sweeping pasture and glistening wetlands, and by an internationally important bird sanctuary, grazed by livestock as in days gone by. The scene is framed by the open sea and the local fishing boats that still land their catch here.

Echoes of the area’s explosive and maritime history are all around you in this  unexpectedly unspoilt and fertile habitat, rich with wild plants and skies that all year round brim with birds.

Shepherd Neame is one of Britain’s oldest brewery houses and much of the area pays homage to its industrious fortunes with numerous oast house and hop farms dotted around.
