Faversham to Conyer and Teynham

Faversham to Teynham Walk August 10 2013

So here I am in catch up mode, basically we have been walking, however due to a pinched nerve in my neck, I have been unable to sit at the computer to key in our walks.  Managed to arrange my photos, but not write up anything.  So you will find our walks posted out of order a bit.  C’est la vie!

Another section of the Saxon Shore WayStart: Faversham  -a market town and civil parish in the Swale district of Kent, England. The parish of Faversham (Feversham) grew up around an ancient sea port on Faversham Creek and was the birthplace of the explosives industry in England.  Read more:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faversham

WEATHER: Forecast for the day was perfect albeit a bit warm for walking however the clouds and a nice breeze helped.  Forecast Temps: 18-24C Wind: Northerly 3-6mph.

Getting to the start: We drove to Teynham (our destination point) and parked the car at the station car park (free parking). Caught the 8.35am train into Faversham, (the train stops at Teynham every hour) and trip takes 6 minutes.

Arriving in Faversham exit the station into Station Road, turn left and then right down Preston Road to the end, left into Market Street, over B2040, into West Street, and right at Flood Lane.  Then followed the Footpath signs which took us around buildings, and finally to the riverside.

If you have never been to Faversham, and have some time you could explore the town a bit more than we did.  We only live 10 miles away in Whitstable, so Faversham for us is a town we visit quite regularly, so we focused on getting to the river.

Wow I am so behind with my blogs about our walks… first unable to finish this one because of trapped nerve in neck, preventing me from doing computer work and from crocheting… then a three (3) month trip to Australia from early October to end of December, 2013.

I am still recovering from the trapped nerve, small steps in regards to how many hours I can sit and do computer work or crocheting, and the trip “downunder” kept me very busy.

So I am hoping in the following weeks to play catch up with this post about our walk in August, and the more recent walks from this year 2014  for instance, Dungeness and two (2) Thames Path walks.

and life goes on……  ADDING THE REST OF THE PHOTOS TAKEN ON THIS WALK…. then maybe one day I will get to fill in the words….
