Posted: 22 June, 2021 | Category: Walks

It’s in an area beyond where usually meet, so we’re making it a bit longer walk than normal. Towards the end of our walk we stop at the Tree of Life Veganic farm for tea, juice and cake, guests of Jo, Terry and Rosa.

There is plenty of parking in the church car park, which is just a bit further past the church down the hill.The area is full of tantalizing, graphic place names, such as Snake lane, and Iron Hill, as well as include big views across the Swale estuary from Dunkirk Hill, and a small deep sided clay valley nicknamed by some locals as mini Cheddar Gorge.

The walk is 8.4km (5.25 miles), total climb 100m (330ft) and will last about two and half hours. Towards to the end of our walk we’ll include a stop for tea and cake at the Tree of Life veganic farm We’ll have our closing prayers at this point. For those who can stay there’ll be tea, juice and a tour of the farm, while those who want to return home early, can walk a further 15mins back to Boughton Church.

After the past wet and windy couple of weeks, I am pleased to see that this Sunday is set to be dry and sunny. So remembering suncream or a hat might be useful.

There is plenty of parking in the church car park, which is just a bit further past the church down the hill. There is a toilet at Boughton Church and at the farm.Between Boughton Church and Tree of Life veganic farm we cross a golf course; we’ll be crossing this both ways. Especially those who return back early, you will need to take special care to look out for the golf balls and golfers.

It will be best to have sturdy foot-ware that copes with few slippery slopes and muddy paths. In this month of lush abundant growth, a few places are densely over grown with vegetation. There also a couple of fallen trees to duck under, but fortunately no stiles to cross over. Neither was there any livestock. Dogs are welcome, but need to be under close control or kept on a lead. For more information search out the Tree of Life Veganics Facebook page.

It’s really helpful to know you plan to come. This is so we can keep a check on numbers for the walk, but also help our planing for hospitality at the farm. Any questions please email alexander.bienfait@gmail.com

Hope to see you Sunday.
