On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Deal Pier to St Margarets Bay

The Saxon Shore Way & White Cliffs Country Trail follow the seafront at Deal, Walmer, and Kingsdown climbing up for a cliff top walk before descending to towards St Margarets Bay. Deal, a Corporate Member [limb] of the Cinque Ports, is often referred to as one of the gems of the East Kent coast and its attractions include the last remaining public pier in Kent, and Henry V11’s castle! Walmer Castle, another of Henry’s castles, is the official residence of The Lord Warden of The Cinque Ports. The Castle and gardens are open to the public until 4pm on Saturdays so do pop in and take a look around. http://www.english-heritage.org.uk. The ‘First Light Coast’ is the name given to the isolated 'island' of countryside and coastline in the which surrounds the lovely seaside village of St. Margaret's-at-Cliffe with it's secluded cove at St. Margaret's Bay. High on the cliffs an obelisk commemorates The Dover Patrol, and a nearby coastguard lookout has been converted to a tearoom with spectacular views
