Description

Sheerness to Minster

Mon 15th July 9.45 am- 1.30 pm

Walk 10a of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table

From the station we visit Blue Town and hear stories of its historic past. Then we head for Rose Street Cottage of Curiosities, an old docker’s cottage and the home of Sheppey Promenade and Big Fish Arts, for tea and scones and an opportunity to share stories and drawings. We walk our cream teas off along Marine Parade, with views of the estuary, ending with a picnic in the grounds of Minster Gatehouse Museum and a chance to look inside at some of its collection.

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.

Please note:
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.
