Chilham Circular Walk

CHILHAM CIRCULAR WALK  - is a 9.7 mile (15.6km) circular walking route from Chilham that follows part of the Stour Valley Walk and then deviates and climbs up into the Kentish Downs along the edge of the Eggringe Wood, some downland and upland fields, and along a pleasant escarpment with panoramic views, descending down and passing through the attractive estate of Godmersham Park (a house owned by the brother of writer Jane Austen, and where she often stayed), and then finishes along part of the North Downs Way, and a quiet back lane up towards Chilham Castle. 195 more words
