In the penultimate day of the 2014 White Cliffs Walking Festival, ramblers will embark on five walks exploring Deal, Dover, Samphire and Fowlmead.
Organised by the White Cliffs Ramblers – the branch of the national Ramblers organisation covering south Kent – the festival will feature 32 walks over seven days.
The Timeball and Telegraph Trail is the first walk of the day commencing at 9.20am. Walkers will meet at South Street in Deal and catch the No.12 bus at 9.43am or meet by the green bridge over the A2 at Kingston at 10.15am. The last section of the 14.5 mile walk will be from Greenwich Timeball, through Womenswold and Betteshanger to Deal Timeball. Walkers can enjoy a pub lunch or bring their own. The walk will be led by Helena Rowena.
Country Trail walkers will also meet at South Street in Deal and catch the same bus to Whitfield. The 12-mile walk will take them via Waldershare, offering great country and sea views, before a pub lunch at The Cider Works.
For the Battlements Walk, meet leader Ted Roche in the car park at Elms Vale Recreation Ground at 10am and be a part of a fascinating walk around and through the ancient battlements and defences of Dover gone by, including the awe inspiring Drop Redoubt.
The Samphire Walk at 11am, which is suitable for those with mobility difficulties, learning needs and their carers, will be gentle 1.5 mile meander, led by Pamela Withey and a chance to see the wildlife and history of the unique area.
The final walk of the day is the five mile Country Park Walk starting from Deal Pier at 2pm. The walk will start at Deal Pier and end at Fowlmead. The relaxing stroll will take walkers through the old town and is a chance to stand on the heights of Fowlmead and enjoy its panoramic views.
