Our tenth leg of the North Downs Way Adventure begins in the picturesque village of Wye. A village, although small holds lots of history. From here we rejoin the North Downs Way and journey through Kings Wood, once a royal hunting ground and still home to a large herd of fallow deer. From there we walk through the beautiful village square at Chilham, not to mention through some of Blean’s ancient woodland which holds secrets of Bigbury Camp, an old Iron age fort, a possible site for Julius Ceasar’s first battle as he led his forces in the Roman Invasion of Britian.

We finish this section of our adventure in the historic walled city of Canterbury. At Canterbury West Station with views of the medieval Westgate Towers.
