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

Herne Bay to Reculver

The Saxon Shore is clearly waymarked along this section. Herne Bay is a popular seaside resort which has 19th century origins and the 30 turbines of the Kentish Flats Wind Farm are clearly visible off shore. For those in search of traditional seaside magic, you will find it in Herne Bay. Two miles of splendid seafront offer seaside favourites in the shape of candyfloss, ice cream parlours, cafés, friendly pubs and fish and chip bars. From Bishopstone Glen to Reculver a path option along the undercliff allows good views of the geological layers that have been revealed by constant erosion. On reaching Reculver, the ruined church sits on a prominent headland that is now a Country Park, managed in partnership by Canterbury City Council, English Heritage and Kent Wildlife Trust. A byname for the towers of the ruined church is the "Twin Sisters" and they are Reculver's most dominant features so be sure to get us a picture!
