This years walk was as delightful as ever, it was exciting to explore the shortcut in Kings wood to Molash and a few photos can be seen in a previous blog.

Also this year there was a huge visual change outside Challock church. Trees were chopped down and opened up the w...

Next year the bank holiday has been shifted from the usual Monday to Friday 8th May 2020 to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day (the Allies' Victory in Europe}.  All of the churches have war memorials to the fallen and will probably have exhibitions...

My husband Kev and I went with friends for a walk to try out the new off-shoot route that cuts off a corner in Kingswood. We were delighted by the sunlight showing off the bluebells and realising that there were more paths to explore another time. We recognised where w...

Some May Bank Holidays pre 2010 were extremely hot & dry underfoot, unlike most recent Walks that have tended to have better walking conditions. This is a photo of me on a sweltering Five Church Walk, enjoying a pint from the White Horse at Chilham before checking in a...

My first report was published in Chilham Parish News June issue:-

Unfortunately on the day of the Walk I was still in Margate Hospital recovering from major bowel surgery three days earlier, but I arrived home that evening to be greeted by news of what a great day it ha...

This charity walk has been popular every May Day bank holiday Monday since the mid eighties, with many walkers coming back year after year, so something must be special about it.   Have you tried it yet, if not why not try it out this year - if the whole 16 mile circui...

The Five Church Walk Committee consists of a representative from each church on the route, plus one independent member responsible for publicity outside these parishes (who doesn't normally attend meetings).  The personnel has been unchanged for a number of years, larg...
