Faversham, Ham Marshes and Oare Creek
Sunday, 17 June 2018
Start time: 10:00
(Estimated finish time: 12:45)
Leisurely 5 miles / 8.1 km
Stonebridge pond was once at the heart of the nation’s gunpowder industry. We will walk along the creek, following a section of the Saxon Shore Way which takes us across marshes and back to the creek, passing lots of interesting boats moored there. We will follow the route past Davington Priory, built in the 12th century and now a Benedictine nunnery, back into Faversham. As this walk is only 5 miles we will have a coffee break but not lunch. Plenty of nice places to eat in and around Faversham.
We will meet at the Guildhall in Faversham's Market Place. There is plenty of on-street or carpark parking spaces locally although much is pay and display. The Market Place is a 10 minute walk from Faversham Railway Station.
