Stour Valley Walk
The walk passes through some of Kent's finest landscapes, most important nature sites and most historic, un-spoilt villages. The walk is signed with the logo of a heron, occasionally seen in the area.
The route is 51 miles long and is of interest for its landscape and history, and for its archaeological, historical and architectural features. Part of the Pilgrims' Way (a modern invention) follows the river valley from Wye to Canterbury after the North Downs.
The walk passes through a varied landscape of downland, woodland, orchards, hop gardens and farmland; lakes, dykes and marshland; unspoilt villages and hamlets; and historic towns.
