Faversham Two Creeks walk
16th July 2019 11.15am-3.30pm
Walk 11a of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table
A short walk from the station takes us into Faversham’s historic town centre and its market place. We pass Shepherd Neame – the country’s oldest brewer – then over the Victorian swing bridge to follow the creekside path past quayside buildings and then through open countryside to the sea wall.
A lunch stop will be made at Hollowshore where there is a pub, the Shipwright’s Arms, and this will also allow time for creative activities to reflect the atmosphere and scenery of the area. We then leave Faversham Creek to follow Oare Creek to reach the village of Oare and then on to Faversham, passing a windmill, a church and a pond en route.

T100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. If this walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.
You need to choose walks within your capabilities; the walk leaders are experienced but must take your word that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen.
Walk leaders will be at the start of the walk regardless of the weather. In the unlikely event of any unforeseen circumstances, Kinetika reserve the right to change or cancel a walk and/or performance. Please check the website regularly for any updates or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
What to bring
Please ensure that you are properly equipped for all walks. The weather can be unpredictable so bring waterproof clothing and/or sun hats and sun cream – it’s best to be prepared for everything!
Walking boots/shoes are recommended, but otherwise please wear suitable and comfortable footwear- best to leave open-toe sandals or high heels at home. Make sure you bring a packed lunch, if necessary, and plenty to drink.
We will be taking photographs and video of this event to promote and celebrate the project in print and online. If you do not give consent to be photographed or filmed, that’s absolutely fine, please let a member of the Kinetika team know on the day.
