46. Stour Valley Walk

The Stour Valley Walk is a 58 mile route through the Low Weald and North Downs, giving you access to some the most picturesque parts of East Kent, finishing at Pegwell Bay.  Take in the rolling grassland, woods, marshes, peat bogs, orchards and picturesque villages along the way. The walk can be completed over a long weekend or in shorter sections.

The Stour Valley walk meanders through the Kent Downs AONB from the source of the River Stour in Lenham to Canterbury. One of the most stunning sections of the Stour Valley Walk can be found between Wye and Chilham, passing through a rolling landscape with panoramic views. Follow the green ‘Stour Valley’ walking signs that feature the Stour walk’s heron symbol.
