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.

Terrain: A flat walk using public footpaths that cross fields, uneven and potentially boggy in places. The walk also passes through open fields with horses and there are regular points where there is a need to use stiles to cross between fields.

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.
