The Canterbury Rings is an ambitious project. They are all existing public rights of way or quiet tracks and lanes and apart from not being specifically waymarked as part of the new network they are easy to follow. They all have good existing signage (God bless you Kent PROW team!) and are well used. Of course like all footpaths they are occasionally muddy and brambly.
The Outer Ring
This circles Canterbury's countryside - and it is beautiful. The river stour winds its way through the low chalk downs, and hop gardens are interspersed with ancient woodlands.
