It's amazing to run or cycle by the river and over the boardwalk, you are so close to the city centre but you wouldn't know it. Cross the railway tracks and it links in to miles of fields and footpaths beyond.

There is some railway history too as you can climb the old embankment of the now-dismantled Elham Valley line, below which is a very-well carved picnic bench, and further along under the road bridge were the stars...the highland cattle. They were... More

As well as following the Stour River from Chartham to Canterbury, we were able to walk over the marshes via bridges and duck boards. Information, well sited , kept us informed about flora and fauna. Surprisingly we walked through a field of highland cattle,... More

I came across this by accident. This is a manmade marsh, it used to be a quarry. It has been looked after really well. It is on the National Cycle Network and there is a lovely path that runs along the Stour. There is an old railway, that lasted 60 years until ugly cars came along. It is like stepping... More
