Help connect Queenborough

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 Queenborough’s Slow Ways.

But happily when I got to Kingsferry Bridge I saw the new fingerpost for the England Coastal Path, so I tested that and went back to Queenborough....

Firstly, I started my walk at Swale train station, so can't vouch for the section in the Isle of Sheppey. The stretch from Swale station to little Murston nature reserve way absolutely trekking with forage fruit, in September this section would be a fantastic place to harvest apples and pears. From there the path moves away from the shore line (Saxon Shoreway walk & the England Coastal Path) and travels inland towards Faversham, cutting underneath Oare and thereby skipping both Oare and Faversham creeks. The route as planned on slow ways is equally lovely though and probably provides more variety in scenery and habitat as it travels through Oare and Davington which are both picturesque and provide pub opportunities on route....

A very quick and quiet walk, manages to avoid busy roads and very pretty in places. Definitely worth the walk! :)...

A long route but lots of highlights and one of the best routes I've walked for orchard blossom, although sadly I was about a month too early for that. Just a little way north of the village (off route) there were large flocks of high-tide roosting birds in saltmarsh close to the path, very good views especially if you stay behind the sea wall to not disturb them much. I haven't actually walked the road section on Sheppey or between Milton Creek Country Park and Conyer Creek (except using Google Street View) although I've crossed it and walked adjacent section of the Sheerness-Queenborough-Sittingbourne-Faversham group of routes which often overlap....

The views of the Swale from Kingsferry Bridge was my high point, tide timing meant nice views of salt and fresh water marsh, mudflats and water and a good chance to see wading birds fairly close. Between Queenborough and the Kingsferry Bridge I was actually trying to walk SitQue 1 but couldn't as it was just too waterlogged!...

This route wasn't walkable in late March 2023 because it was too wet to cross Neatscourt Marshes - the fields between Rushenden and the Kingsferry Bridge. The alternative is a mostly pavemented (and probably quite boring and noisy) road walking route via Queenborough Rd then Sheppey Way. I checked that wet and unpassable bit of the route from the Swale end, and found the public footpath had been fenced across where the GPS said the path was, maybe the other reviewer climbed over the blocked up but climbable gate to the west, or followed the access track to the east. Just after Kingsferry Bridge I didn't bother scrambling down the steep bank to follow the line of the route but just followed the road to the roundabout. The route follows the official public footpath but that is very blocked by a deep band of scrub and in front of that is an ankle-unfriendly area crowded with big anthills and rabbit holes and a healthy coverage of thick vegetation....

Near the end of the walk I crossed the road bridge onto Sheppey and went down onto the marsh across what seems to be a grassy field but is in fact very wet under foot. There are also steps up where the field path meets Old Ferry Road at Swale. These include Lower Rainham Road and Horsham Lane between the Orchard View estate and Upchurch....

Also the path along The Fleet and a small group of navelwort plants in the otherwise boring long alley section....
