Higham to Gravesend
19th July 2.15-6pm
Walk 14 of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table
From Higham Train station we will make our way to Church Street where we will pick up the Saxon Shore Way and make our way along the North Kent Marshes to Gravesend.
Our walk will finish with a warm welcome and reception on LV21 a 40 metre steel-hulled lightship that has been transformed into a floating art space and performance facility on the riverfront.
The evening continues with a food and drink themed twilight market at the historic Gravesend Borough Market where we can eat together.
(Please note there are limited public facilities on this route. There are public toilets when we make it onto the prom which is about 20 mins from the end. )

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.
