Roger Nolan added Hamash two, a new walk from Hamstreet to Ashford (Kent)Walk this route
Starts well from Hamstreet, but nearer Ashford there are many missing footpaths, and in trying to find a valid way through we had to cross the fast bypass without a zebra crossing twice. Have proposed an alternative route....
Lots of this route no longer exists either because the paths are wrong or they’re very poorly or not maintained. It crosses the Trainline and the main road without a formal crossing or bridge. There are much better ways into ashford....
Lengthy stretch across flood plain near Stour river is also enjoyable. For those who enjoy some history there are several churches along the route that can easily be included in the route....
Hardly any gradient to this walk but the beginning (Leaving Headcorn) along the Smarden Road is to encounter a very fast stretch of road which some may feel intimidated by....
Cristie added Ashlym two, a new walk from Ashford (Kent) to LymingeWalk this route
We've been told by a Slow Wayer that part of this route involves walking along the B2068 past Farthing Common Plant Centre. This is a fast road with no footpath that they would not recommend walking. Ashlym two is an alternative that goes via Skeete and is only on the B2068 for a short distance....
It’s generally easy to navigate, although there are some points where you lose the path through open pasture land or in wooded sections. Planning the route in advance and taking a map will certainly help. It’s very, very easy to lose the path....
Follows much of the Stour Valley Walk from Ashford via Wye, Crundale, Godmersham and Chilham....
