Celebrate Cycling, Walking & Local Food at the Catha’s Seat Picnic

Cyclists, walkers and runners from all over Kent are getting ready for the fifth annual Catha’s Seat Picnic.

Catha’s Seat is a remote, quiet place on National Cycle Network Route 18 and the Stour Valley Walk that looks out over the fields to Chilham Castle.  Featuring two sculptural solid oak benches with in-built cycle parking, it’s a perfect rest stop for tired legs or a destination for a day out.

Gathering at a peaceful rural spot in the Stour Valley overlooking Chilham Castle, all are welcome to join and enjoy live music from Ashford Folk, original poetry from Robert Graham and a locally sourced picnic donated by Wye Bakery, Wye Butchers, The King’s Head, Ripple Farm, Perry Court Farm, The Wooden Spoon, Wye Co-op and the Cheesemakers of Canterbury.

Local cycling and walking organisations – Spokes East Kent Cycle Campaign, Cycle Circle and the Wye Footpaths Preservation Society – have got together with Catha’s Seat to guide you to the picnic.  The nearest train station is Chilham, from where you can walk just 1 mile to Catha’s Seat with a friendly local guide.

Cycle that little bit further to the picnic (7 miles) leaving from Toddler’s Cove, Canterbury at 11.45am.
