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.

We run regular local walks throughout the year, a monthly Sunday and week day walk principally within the beautiful Elham Valley.
