Hike the North Downs Way- Stage 9- Wye to Canterbury
As a hiking business, we are exempt from the rule of 6, By signing up to our event you are agreeing to our COVID 19 guidelines as outlined here:
On This stage 9 of our epic journey, we start from the country village of Wye. We pick up the North Downs Way through the Kent Downs AONB. Across rolling hills and wooded tracks and secluded orchards, we’ll take in the rural Garden of England in all its muddy glory as autumn begins its inevitable turn to winter. We might even spy a reindeer or two! We will pass quaint villages with ancient churches before the majestic Canterbury Cathedral comes into view. The hike ends in the City of Canterbury, which is worth nosing around- this ancient place of Pilgrimage is worth stopping exploring the Roman ruins and Medieval town, or at least stop for a celebratory pint!
GRADE: Intermediate/Challenging. 14 miles/23 km with 380m elevation gain. Paths can be very muddy this time of year, so be booted and suited for it.
MEETING POINT: Due to Covid, we can not travel together and organise group travel at this time. The hike begins at Wye Station at a time when a train would make sense. This is a linear walk that ends at Canterbury West station, which is on the same train line as Wye if you need to get back to your car.
COST: £10 organiser fee payable on RSVP. We have temporarily raised the price of walks to be able to accommodate smaller groups. As soon as it is safe to take larger groups, we will re-asses our pricing. For this hike, I will be taking a maximum of 15.
What to bring: Head torch, Face covering and hand sanitizer, Lunch, snacks, water, suitable clothing and hiking footwear. We will not be stopping at a shop or a pub so have everything you need for the day! Click here-https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FLjSAczjgbZ26OKE4Iy_zX2IFqkybdXCmK9AkVfqI1w/edit?usp=sharing
