Sandwiched between Sittingbourne and Whitstable, Faversham is an historic Kentish treasure offering visitors the promise of discovery and adventure.

The walk also passes through Blean Wood, one of the largest woodlands in Kent and allows you to follow an ancient path called Pilgrims Way, the road used by the Romans to get to London from Dover.

Whether you seek heritage, history, flora or fauna, this walk provides an excellent example of what Faversham can offer.
