Hoo peninsula walk at Cliffe, north Kent

A lovely piece by Carol Donaldson in the GuardianĀ at the Christmas weekend drew my attention to this area just east of Gravesend. It’s only an hour’s drive from, say, Brockley (potentially less if you can get to the A2 more quickly than I did today) and 40 minutes by train from Lewisham (direct to Higham on the Gillingham route). 216 more words


163. Gravesend to Cliffe

March 2005

More marshes was the theme for this walk. I did this walk in reverse and about 18 months earlier than my previous walk. The reason for this is that I had earlier had the idea of walking the Saxon Shore Way (before I decided to do the whole coast), which starts at Gravesend and it follows the Saxon route of the coast (where it is not lost to the sea) which means that in places it is more inland than the route I had walked. 1,727 more words


162. Allhallows-on-Sea to Cliffe

October 2006

After previous walks around industry, and tortuous twisty turny paths around numerous streams and estuaries I was looking forward to this walk because on the map later I’d actually be able to draw a long line showing progress along the shore. 2,839 more words
