We are a group of volunteers dedicated to the promotion of walking in the Elham Valley in the heart of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Through our affiliation with the ‘Walkers are Welcome’ network we also promote the Valley as a destination for walkers who live outside the area.

While we run regular local walks throughout the year, our activities are mainly focused upon organising our annual Elham Valley Walking Festival, a two day event in June.


Having now resumed our monthly Sunday walks we’ve put together the following programme for the rest of the year. We will of course monitor closely official Covid-19 restrictions / guidance and will make any changes as necessary. All walks begin at 10.15am.

We look forward to walking with you again.
