Working for Wye - past, present and future

The Five Church Walk is back, Monday 2nd May

A winding footpath through coppiced bluebell woods and dappled sunlight

Deep in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty walkers are striding out today and enjoying the spring. This year the 16-mile walk is anti-clockwise, and as usual the route takes in the parish churches of Godmersham, Chilham, Molash, Challock and All Saints, Boughton Aluph. Part of the signed route passes through Kings Wood, and the bluebells are at their best about now.

Since 1984 the annual May Day bank holiday Monday charity walks have raised funds for five rural churches, the Pilgrims Hospices and Kent Air Ambulance. This successful event was a regular social fixture - until Covid precautions prevented the 2020 and 2021 walks from going ahead.

At the end of each section walkers are welcome to pause and celebrate the traditional start of summer, with delicious (and entirely guilt-free) refreshments provided at each church. To take part walkers need only to book in at any of the five churches, anytime after 10.00, and contribute a minimum cash or cheque donation of £5 on the day. Please see the Five Church Walk website for the map and full details. Chilham is the nearest railway station to the signed route.
