Charing to Harrietsham Walk, Wednesday 17th August.

August 1, 2022

Join us on our Charing Rail Ramble on Wednesday 17th August. 

Starting at Charing Station, this walk will take you through the historic and picturesque village of Charing, located at the foot of the Kent North Downs. We will point out some of the features and buildings that date from the 14th century. The walk will head onto the North Downs Way, probably the steepest climb, then follow the gentle rolling route towards Harrietsham. Along the way you may see the buzzards flying overhead, and the flora of the North Downs. There are many points of interest along the way and you may hear about the ecology of the North Downs Way, some of the farming techniques you may see, history, pilgrimages, fauna and flora of the trail.

With breaks to take in the views and some refreshment, the trail will then lead to the Lenham Cross, a war memorial carved into the chalk on the North Downs, before making our way along the last stretch to the historic village of Harrietsham. There you can spend some time exploring before heading to the station.
