The Saxon Shore Way traces the coast as it was in Roman times and follows the line of the Roman fortifications.

The Faversham area section of the Saxon Shore Way extends from Conyer Creek in the west, alongside The Swale, passing through Harty Ferry, the village of Oare, through Faversham and on to north of Graveney in the east.

Along the way, you will pass the Oare Marshes and South Swale Nature Reserves.

The Swale Heritage Trail is a shorter footpath of some 11 miles from Murston, west of Sittingbourne, to Goodnestone, near Graveney.

A guidebook to the Saxon Shore Way is available from all good bookshops, Faversham TIC or Kent County Council's online shop.
