We enjoyed a delightful 4 mile walk through this part of the Great Stour Way on a bright afternoon. How nice to see a countryside river walk so well used by walkers, runners and cyclists. The river and flood plain contain plenty of wildlife, with an abundance of birds to hear and see. Would recommend to anyone keen on a... More

Its beautiful here. So peaceful. One with nature. Come here and take a lovey walk and just relax and watch all the wildlife. It has a lovely tarmac path all the way through, so no need for weeklies, unless you go off the beaten track. Lots of dog walkers here, and plenty cycling through. Would highly recommend you take a... More

A beautiful place to walk along the river. So peaceful with lovely flora and fauna. We aren't on a warm afternoon and what a perfect way to spend it.

A short walk through the Westgate Gardens and beyond the children's playground is the start of a path along the Great Stour river that takes you to Hambrook Marshes and an environment that feels miles away from the crowds of the city centre. This natural wetland is a great place to stroll, jog or cycle and just enjoy the scenery... More

a lovely way to get away from the stresses of life you can walk for miles and miles, and it seems you are in the middle of no where, I love walking here with my music on just watch out for the cyclists! it seems like a secret get away is really amazing and will definitely be visiting again.

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.

A lovely walk along the river from Canterbury out into the countryside. It is also a shared cycle path. 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
