The only place I'd change it is as you approach Ospringe where this route puts you on the unpleasant A2 (London Road). Instead you could keep on the footpath to Ospringe, crossing the A2 at Water Lane....

There are a couple of shops and pubs en route too, including a lovely little coffee shack called Quint's Retreat by the boat yard on the way out of Faversham....

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....

If the route was to be made prettier then there could be adaptations in the early stages route so that you are taken along the river, but this would be impractical in the autumn/winter months as it can become very boggy at that time....

A better route would be to follow the railway line for the most part - Tonge Road, Lomas Road, Teynham Station, Deerton Street, Davington, Faversham Station. No pavement for most of it but a nice quiet road through fields and woodland....

First walk of this route, We started in Canterbury at in Buttermarket, here there are plenty of places to eat/drink, use toilet facilities and you are within easy walking distance of 2 train stations with connections to London, and the bus station. We found the downloaded walk was made up of very straight lines which did not always match the map so had to stop a few times to work out the route....
