The Isle of Oxney

14 May 2018 | East Kent Group

Despite a cold grey day with the threat of rain 14 members met at Wittersham church. The first half of the walk had some lovely apple blossom and woodland with steep little valleys and bluebells. Lunch was in the welcome shelter of Stone Church with its remains of a Roman altar. From the high ground we descended the former cliffs to flat marshland and an old shepherd’s hut complete with fireplace and straw bales which sent some people’s imaginations into overdrive ! We then followed the Royal Military Canal for a mile and the river Rother before a final steep uphill section to reach Wittersham church again....

A smaller than usual group - welcoming a few new faces - was rewarded with a perfectly warm, mud-free September day for this particular walk. Starting with a three-mile amble along the river Stour from central Canterbury, we then crossed the railway at Chartham and headed across fields and through an orchard, with some uphill gradients, to Chartham Hatch. Sadly, no one took up my suggestion to run Benny Hill chasey stylie across the field the owner of which has failed to maintain a clear footpath, but I did ...
