Thursday, 12 July, 2018 – Lenham to Canterbury (Packed Lunch)

Meet at Canterbury West station to catch 9:05 direct train to Lenham (arrives 09:46) cost £8:80 for return ticket with railcard – this gives the possibility of catching the train back to Canterbury at any time from Chilham on the way back.

From Lenham Station we walk up to the NDW, crossing the A20, then in the direction of Stalisfield, Bells Forestal and Badlesmere (taking lunch somewhere before we arrive at Badlesmere) – there is the Red Lion at Badlesmere where may wish to stop for a drink before continuing (lunch at the pub was not a memorable experience last time we tried it, thus ‘packed lunch’).

In the afternoon we proceed to Shottenden, then Old Wives Leas, rejoining the NDW and later cutting down to the SVW before we get to Chartham Hatch and then continuing into Canterbury, arriving at Toddlers Cove.

Distance 22 miles (or less if one takes the train at Chilham or Chartham)
