Overview

A linear walk to Chilham Station led by Pam C (Mobile No: 07538 509205). An undulating walk along the Wye and Crundale Downs, with views over the surrounding countryside (designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), passing through Sole Street, Godmersham, and the pretty village of Chilham. Please bring food and drink with you; the pub at Sole Street is now closed and is unlikely to re-open, so there will be a picnic lunch stop. Joint with Kensington, Chelsea & Wandsworth Group. Map: E137, L189.
