Stour Valley & Kings Wood Walk – North Downs Way 40th Anniversary Celebrations
Walk past All Saints Church at Boughton Aluph and up into the ancient woodland of King’s Wood before arriving in the medieval village of Chilham.
We are pleased to announce the North Downs Way 40th anniversary walks programme, delivered in collaboration with a number of partner organisations.
The walks listed cover the length of the trail so there’s something for everyone whether you want to walk in Surrey, Kent or Medway.
Our walk partners come from a very diverse background and will approach the walks very differently.
