Slow Ways linking Hythe and Ashford (Kent), Folkestone, Hamstreet, Lyminge, New Romney
Progress towards triple-checked route options for Hythe’s five Slow Ways: 40%
Help connect Hythe
Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.
Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.
Give a hike and help get a for every one of Hythe’s Slow Ways.
