To celebrate The Heart of Kent Walking Festival, our experienced leader will take you on a 3-mile walk starting and finishing at Teston Country Park along the River Medway, where we will keep an ear out for early spring birdsong and hope to see some spring flowers. The route meanders along the tow path to Bow Bridge marina and then continues on the other side along the Medway Valley Walk, with some spectacular views across the countryside.

This is part of a series of free walks and events, funded by Involve Kent.

Participants will be asked to complete a short, confidential health questionnaire for our funders.
