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.

Arin Hoad pledged to walk Sitque oneWalk this route
It’s true this route follows a single, somewhat busy road but I found it to be much more enjoyable than expected....
Arin Hoad pledged to walk Sitfav oneWalk this route
Kissing gates, Wood stiles, narrow entrances and some steep steps. Great cafes/ pubs on route....
Mainly open fields with good long views....

Daisy C added Sitfav two, a new walk from Sittingbourne to FavershamWalk this route
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....

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....
We headed for a gate into the field in which the small bridge crosses the water....
Between Oak Lane and Breach Lane (just west of Newington), the route passes through a free-range chicken farm with many gates to keep the chickens safe....

The first part is along the River Medway which has some lovely views. A lovely way to spend a morning. The route is not really accessible for wheelchairs or pushchairs though....
