Description

the way around the ancient coastline offers a diversity of scenery from wide expanses of marshland bordering the Thames and Medway estuaries to the white cliffs of Dover.there are views over Romney marsh from the escarpment that marks the ancient coastline between Folkestone and rye and from the cliffs at the high weald of Hastings. here the romans invaded Britain and later, built the Saxon shore forts to defend the island against a new wave of invaders. this route can be done in both directions with most of the climbing coming near the Hastings dover end. its a fast flat route when not a mudfest. there is many a place all along the route to pick up food and drink
