Stour Valley Walk
Follow the River Stour from its source near Lenham to the estuary at Pegwell Bay on the Kent coast. You will pass through a varied landscape of downland, woodland, orchards, farmland, lakes, dykes and marshland. The route also passes through many of Kent's finest unspoilt villages, hamlets and historic towns.
The walk beings at the village of Lenham and heads towards Ashford via Little Chart and Great Chart. From Ashford you turn north towards historic Canterbury with its magnificent cathedral. The next section then leads to Sandwich passing the attractive Westbere Lakes and Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve as you go. The final section then takes you from Sandwich to the delightful Pegwell Bay on the Stour Estuary.
