This is a beautiful walk along a newly-made multi-user trackway made mostly from compacted sand. Nice underfoot. The people you meet are nice and well able to share between cyclists, runners, walkers, mother with prams, or bird watchers. The path runs alongside the river, with...More

I like riding along the Stour way to Chatham, great scenic views by the river. I like to ride here during summer and early autumn.

Very nice little walk in good weather by the river between Canterbury and Chartham. Next time I will take the bus to Chartham and walk back and finish with a cold beer in Canterbury. There's really nothing in Chartham except a local pub and this...More
