Put your best feet forward for the White Cliffs Walking Festival.
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.
These include short walks, long walks, special interest walks and themed walks in the Dover-Deal area, ranging from a two-mile walk looking at Dover’s history and archaeology, to the 32-mile White Cliffs Challenge, starting from St Margaret’s and taking in the entire length of the iconic White Cliffs of Dover.
The festival follows last year’s successful Deal Walking Festival, also organised by the White Cliffs Ramblers, when 674 people went on the 28 walks.
Margaret Lubbock, chairman of the White Cliffs Ramblers, who are celebrating their 25th birthday this year, said: “We have expanded the festival to include many more walks in the larger area of the glorious White Cliffs of Dover and surrounding downland countryside.
“The walks will include something for everyone living nearby or holidaying in the area, whether you are a strong walker or looking for a leisurely stroll with the family, learning about the rich historical heritage of the South Kent coast.
“There are good transport links to Deal and Dover and the majority of the walks’ start locations.”
