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.


Our monthly walks are always circular and take place usually on the third Sunday, meeting at 10.15am.
