Fordwich Village - Easy Access Trail is a 2.6 mile out and back trail located near the city of Fordwich. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for walking. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Well-compacted, smooth surface except for approach to the reed pond where stones are up to 40mm. Please note that the path climbs gradually all the way from the woodland up to the pond with occasional flat surfaces. There are no seats along the path. Fordwich was once a busy port serving Canterbury, when the River Stour was tidal. The stone used to build Canterbury Cathedral from Caen, in France, was unloaded here. Today, it is said to be the smallest town in Britain and the town hall, which was first built in the reign of Henry VIII, is often open to the public.
