• A Day Walk from Aylesford Priory to the Black Horse Thurnham along the Augustine Camino. We start with the Prior's stamp in our Pilgrim Passports (for anyone who doesn't yet have one) and then head into the village to see the 13th Century bridge, a favourite spot for photographers. We then head over the fields and across the main road to Tyland Barn wildlife centre (see photo), followed by the ruins of Boxley Abbey which was at the centre of a famous Reformation controversy. Lunch is at the King's Arms Boxley where we also have time to visit the charming church of St Mary and All Saints. The afternoon is a stroll through vineyards and fields to Detling and Thurnham. The Black Horse is a stunning country pub right on the Pilgrim's Way.

• What to bring
Water, sunscreen, waterproof, small rucksack, picnic (if not requiring lunch at the pub).

• Important to know
The cost is £10 per person, payable on the day, and includes a guidebook and pilgrim's passport to the full Augustine Camino (for those who don't have one). Aylesford is on the Medway Valley line between Strood (near Rochester) Maidstone and Tonbridge which are all accessible from London and the South East. The station for Thurnham is Bearsted (1.5 miles) which is on the main line between London Victoria and Ashford. There is also parking at each end of the route.
