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.


The guidelines for the new lockdown period regrettably prevent us from running our Sunday walk for November. We hope that the lockdown ends on the planned date, or at least restrictions are relaxed.

We look forward to walking with you again.

Sunday November 15th:  Cancelled.

Sunday December 20th:  West Hythe, Lympne Castle, Brockhill Country Park, Lympne Hill . Meet at Canal Car Park, West Hythe at 10.15am. 4 hours with a coffee and mince pie stop at Lympne Castle Bistro. Strenuous.
