Farm bridge on Saxon Shore Way near Chapel Bank
Farm bridge on Saxon Shore Way near Chapel Bank
The long distance path heads from Lower Road towards the Reading Sewer it crosses a dyke leading into the larger dyke. In the background is Chapel Bank. Formerly known as Ebony (Ebon's Ey or Ebon's Island) and once, as the name suggests, an island in the Rother tidal estuary that ran around the northern side of Oxney.

Note; OS maps show the path using a different bridge over the dyke. None are seen so have to use this nearby bridge.
Saxon Shore Way
The Saxon Shore Way starts at Gravesend, Kent and traces the coast as it was in the Roman times as far as Hastings in East Sussex, 163 miles (262 km) in total. The Saxon Shore Way was originally opened in 1980, but has since been re-established, and in parts re-routed and extended. It follows the coastline of the South East as it was about 1500 years ago, long before the North Kent Marshes or the Romney Marsh came into existence. The Way takes its name, The Saxon Shore, from a line of fortifications built along the coastline as it was in the 3rd Century AD.
