Greensand Way Stage 11 - an urban start, the outskirts of Ashford but a much nicer ending
|Status||Draft - under construction!|
|Length||10 miles (16.3 km)|
|Toughness||2 out of 10 (50m of ascent)|
This is the 11th and final stage of the Greensand Way - from Ashford to Ham Street.
The morning of this walk is unavoidably dull. It starts by heading west through Ashford's suburbs to regain the route from the previous stage, and then circles around the outskirts of Ashford. The afternoon is much, much nicer, countryside again, to the pretty village of Ham Street.
Author's note. This walk is only included for people who wish to do every step of the Greensand Way by public transport. If you choose 1 stage of it to skip, make it this one! It would be much nicer to have merged it with the previous stage from Pluckley, but that would have been far too long. Do have a look at the route on the OS map page. I did look at a shortcut, due south from Ashford Station to regain the Greensand Way south of Ashford, but could find no suitable route. Suggestions welcome!
Catch a direct train (normal or high speed) to Ashford. Buy a day return to Ham Street.
This walk is one of 11 stages of the Greensand Way - a regional long distance path in the Southeast of England
