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

Faversham to Whistable Harbour

Follow the Saxon Shore Way markers from the town centre along Faversham Creek to the Swale Estuary. Look out for the traditional Thames Barges! Faversham, a Fair Trade Town, has the longest preserved street; the oldest brewery and the oldest gunpowder mill in the country so a great place to explore while you are in the area! Whitstable, sometimes called The Pearl of Kent, is famous for its oyster beds and the Oyster Festival which takes place every July. Along the walk you will see the 30 turbines of the Kentish Flats Wind Farm which are clearly visible off shore. If you are looking for a bit more adventure during the walk, then there are boat trips from Whitstable to view the wind farm, or seal colonies.
