This short walk not far from the villages of Walmer and Kingsdown offers some fine views from Hawkshill Freedown. The Freedown is a public area of open grassland offering fine views across the surrounding countryside, the English Channel and on a clear day, the coast of France. Hawkshill was once a World War I aerodrome and now the site of a memorial to pilots who flew from here and were killed fighting in France. The walk also passes Walmer Castle which dates from the 16th century. The castle formed part of a line of defense along the edge of the downs. Now owned by English Heritage, the castle is home to a collection of memorabilia from the Duke of Wellington.
