The latest 9km by 9am walk takes us to the North Downs Way, near Chilham, Kent.
The Trail passes through two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty: the Surrey Hills and the Kent Downs. Take a look at Nigel's experience on this trail near Chilham and add it to your list of walks to complete in 2023!
This walk takes you past one of the stunning sculptures recently unveiled along the North Downs Way - a trail that starts in Surrey and stretches for 153 miles to
Dover in Kent.
There are nine sculptures along the route - the one I visited is in King's Wood near Chilham in Kent and offers views of Canterbury Cathedral in the far distance. See https://kentdowns.org.uk/art-t...
My 10KM walk starts and finishes at the King's Wood Car Park near the village of Challock in Kent.
Managed by the Forestry Commisson, King’s Wood is a 1500-acre historic royal hunting forest, which still boast a large herd of fallow deer that run free there.
King's Wood lies within the heart of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Beauty and offers a mixed conifer and broadleaf woodland for you to enjoy.
Some of the wood's highlights include the sweet chestnut coppice and beech woodland with stunning displays of bluebells in the spring.
The walk took me through the wood and onto the North Downs Way, with a
view of Canterbury an its cathedral - albeit some 10km away in
PARKING: For over 100 cars at King's Wood main car park.

DATE OF WALK: 06.16 – 08.56, 22 April 2023

I walk 9km every morning before 9 o'clock, which means in the Winter months the walks are pre-sunrise, so it is pretty much dark for at least 50% of the walking time.
Contributor, Nigel, started wearing Alpaca socks on my daily 9KM BY 9AM walks in February 2022 and found them to be a game changer.
The latest 9km by 9am walk takes us to the North Downs Way, which stretches from Farnham in Surrey to Canterbury and the White Cliffs of Dover in Kent.
