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

Sandwich Quay to Deal Pier

Sandwich, one of the original Cinque Ports, was once the greatest port and fourth largest town in England. The entire town is a conservation area and Strand Street has what is considered to be the longest continuous stretch of timber-framed buildings in the country. Sandwich Bay is an important area of unimproved sand dunes, mudflats, saltmarsh and dune pasture, important for rare plant life and overwintering birds so plenty to keep an eye out for as you walk along. Deal, a Corporate Member of the Cinque Ports, is often referred to as one of the gems of the East Kent coast and it’s attractions include the last remaining public pier in Kent, and Henry V11’s castle! The White Cliffs Country Trail leads from Sandwich Quay to the coast to rejoin the Saxon Shore Way crossing the Royal St Georges Golf Club and later passing the Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club
