Help connect Lyminge

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 Lyminge’s Slow Ways.

I found this route quite frustrating and challenging....

I couldn’t find the footpath to the left, just after Little Dane Farm on Ellington Lane....

There is one footpath that has been deliberately blocked and some other mapping issues which made the navigation somewhat uncertain, including inside a Military Training Zone where soldiers were actually firing towards the path. The attached map (photo 1) shows where there are issues with the Ordance Survey Map (marked as 1-7), or with the line of LymHaw 2 (A-F). From the notes on their photo survey by the route's author I think it’s the route they actually walked along. Either the OS line is on the other side of a fence from where the path in use is, or the LymHaw 2 route line does the same. The issues were magnified by the stern “Danger” signs to stay on the path (photo 4, they don't mean the path shown on the goverment issued maps!), the gunfire (photo 5, weapons pointing at the path I’d just walked along!) and the 'stiles' (photo 6) at each OS theoretical cross-over position. It’s not actually used by the route but checking it began my distrust of the OS mapping. I think you actually walked the tighter-mapped version I've posted as LymHaw 3 so your review and survey would work just as well there if you can re-post them....

Visibility wasn't great and my photos don't really do the walk justice, when it wasn't raining too hard to even get my phone out....

Easy to start/finish at Sandling Station if required, although you would be missing out on the charming seaside town of Hythe. Steep climb out of Saltwood up to Tolsford Hill but well worth it for the views....

There were a couple of issues: a golf course (almost ruined the walk, fantastic bunkers but terrible path maintenance), although we loved the hills they could be less enjoyable to others....

Walk 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....
