We are a friendly group and you're very welcome to join us, step this way ... !
The East Kent group generally walk on the last Sunday of each month 8 -10 miles all day walks. We tend to get between 4 and 20 walkers each month. To avoid confusion you should bring your own lunch, though we do have occasional pub/cafe stops for drinks. We are a friendly group who like to welcome newcomers and are open to other events such as social parties or other outdoor activities.
Uniquely, East Kent has coast around three sides which gives us many varied coastal walks from the dramatic and iconic White Cliffs of Dover, through to the contrasting wilderness of the Romney Marshes and Dungeness, for example. We are fortunate to have river valleys and woodlands all in relatively easy reach and which never fail to bring new delights, changing with every season. The geology of Kent also gives us the North Downs with some moderate climbs where at the top they deliver spectacular views, some across to other counties, some across to near-by France. Not forgetting Kent is also The Garden of England, we have orchards and hop fields with pathways through and oast houses to pass near-by. Additionally, we occasionally do walks on the islands and former islands of Kent including Harty, Oxney, Sheppey, Thanet.
We believe East Kent has a rich variety of landscape and terrain, perhaps some of the most varied in the country, generally all in close proximity whilst retaining a feel of space and openness. Do come and experience these delights for yourself!
