SWC Free Walk 93 (c), Sandling to Dover. 11/3/12.

As the evenings draw out, so does the length of these walks, with this one being around 14 miles ('officially' 13). Setting out from Sandling, the walker is soon ascending Tolsford Hill (181m) on the Elham Valley/Saxon Shore Way. This provides some fine views (on a sunny day) towards the coast. Joining The North Downs Way, there's some fine scenery along the ridge walking towards Peene Country Park. This provides a good spot for a picnic and views down on the Channel Tunnel Terminal,which is surprisingly interesting! Thereafter, the walker continues along The North Downs Way to Capel-le-Ferne (Battery now reopened!), past The Warren on the beach below, various WW2 memorabilia (including the 'Sound Mirror'), past Shakespeare Cliff, the Western Heights and so, into Dover. A very pleasant walk that combines downland and coastal walking, though never really far from the noise of various roads and railways.
