Hike: Canterbury - Chillham - Selling in Kent (19 km / 11.86 miles)
Join us for this moderate walk along the Great Stour to Bagham and then north to our lunch destination in a pub in Chilham. The walk starts at Canterbury and tracks the Great Stour for the six miles. We then turn north and have lunch in a reasonably priced pub in Chilham. After lunch we will hike to The Mount and then back to Selling before returning home. Return train times: see attached photo Walk profile: see attached photo • Graded 6 / 10 difficulty • Wear good walking boots (this is undulating and possibly muddy terrain) • Bring at least 1.5 litres of water on the walk. • Bring snacks to get you to lunch. If you bring a packed lunch you will need to eat it off the pub premises. • Do not join this hike if you have an injury ------------------------------------------------------------------------ • Meet at 8:39:am in front of the ticket office at Kings Cross St Pancras. • You will organise in to groups of three or more people to buy your own Groupsaver tickets which are currently listed as £21.70 Off-Peak Day Return. • We will be leaving on the 9:09am train to Canterbury West arriving at 10:08am. • If you arrive after 8:55am go directly to the ticket office and buy your tickets separately. • We will aim to sit at the front of the train. • We will go to a pub at the end of the hike for some food and nourishment. If you have something else planned for the evening its good not to come on this hike as I can't accurately predict an end time. • This is an moderate walk but still needs an good level of fitness. • Please ensure that you come adequately dressed for all possible weather. Winter walking can be cold with wind chill factor, bring hats, gloves, warm layers, scarves as well as warm clothing. Bring gators in winter. • By signing up to this hike you confirm that you agree to Sunny Walkers Waiver (http://files.meetup.com/9203972/Sunny%20Walkers%20Waiver.pdf). • This walk is brought to you by Sunny Walkers Limited

    What we're about

    Sunny Walkers is a friendly group dedicated purely to getting outdoors, getting some exercise, meeting new people and having fun. The groups are small (less than 20 people); the only motivation is to enjoy the outdoors with like-minded people.

    There is so much to see and do outside of London and around the UK: everything from the hills and sea views of the Sussex Downs to the poetic beauty of the Lake District; the shipwrecks and cliffs of the Cornish coast to the rugged mountains and lochs of Scotland. The UK has some of the best walking in the world I think.

    The goal of the group will be mainly to do interesting day trips out of London but I'd love to get further afield and combine walking with other activities as well: climbing, camping, yoga, biking, surfing, etc. But the most important thing is to get outdoors, meet like-minded people and have fun!
