19 August: A seaside walk from Faversham to Whitstable
Come and join us on this beautiful Seaside walk to celebrate summer. We will start this walk in Faversham, then followe the little known marshy coast of North Kent to Whitstable, where we can dip our feet in the sea and enjoy a drink and some seafood, before we take the train back home.
Faversham is an unexpected delight, with picture book medieval streets radiating from a pretty and bustling market square. We take a little time to admire this beautiful town. We will find Kent’s oldest street market and quaint streets lined with tea rooms. We will pick one to have a coffee break before we start our walk.
As we make our way from Faversham, we will follow its historic waterway, we will reach the land that once formed the Larder of London. From here vital supplies of grain, fruit and hops were sent to the capital by sailing barge. On the other side of the creek we will see the Shipwright’s Inn, widely thought to have been used by smugglers until recent times, because of its extremely isolated position.
We will continue our way along the shoreline Saxon Shoreway, passing the Swale Nature Reserve, a stopover for many rare bird varieties.
