Great walk from Chartham to Canterbury with waterways and wildlife to spot along the way. Downside is the constant traffic noise in parts - but don’t let this deter you from walking this trail. Walk a little further into the Westgate Gardens for a slice of home made cake and a cup of tea at the Tower House Cafe - delicious!

Living in Canterbury, this is a great escape from the hustle of the city centre. Pathed all the way so perfect for everyone of all abilities in all conditions.

First to Review

had a lovely ramble from Canterbury to chartham on the Great Stour Way. goes through beautiful countryside and a fee grazing areas so you're likely to encounter some sheep friends. I began my recording a bit before the great Stour Way, in the West gate gardens, which is why my record is a bit longer than it should be. also highly recommend stopping in chartham for a pint when you get there - there's a 15th century pub not far away from the path called the artichoke which was really nice.
