Event description

Description

A walk on the section of the North Downs Way from Dover to Shepherdswell will give the participants an opportunity to experience a historic journey. For centuries, Dover has received travellers arriving from the continent, as evidenced by local archaeology dating back to the bronze age. Starting the walk at the official plaque of the NDW on the seafront in Dover, there will be a short visit of some of Dover’s historic sites, including the Roman Painted House, The Maison Dieu pilgrim hospital and St. Edmund’s chapel. After some light refreshment, we will begin the climb out of Dover into the Kentish countryside. We will stop at Whitfield church for lunch (please bring a packed lunch). The route will take us along a Roman road, through the lovely Waldershare estate and village of Coldred up to Shepherdswell village, where the walk will conclude for the day.

The Bell pub across from the church offers a warm atmosphere and a good selection of refreshment for thirsty walkers.

Any funds, if any, raised after expenses will be donated to Bewsborough Parish for future walking events and equipment to support pilgrimage and pilgrims throughout the Parish.
