Wouldham :: TQ7164
Wouldham is a small village on the bank of the River Medway in Kent. It has an 11th century church, one school, one village shop, and three public houses. The village grew in the 19th century due to the nearby chalk quarries. Until 1963 there was a ferry across the River Medway.
Walter Burke, who had the distinction of being the purser aboard Victory at the Battle of Trafalgar and of having cradled Lord Nelson himself in his arms as the great man died, was a resident of the village and is buried in the churchyard.

Medway Valley Walk (MVW)
The Medway Valley Walk is a 28 mile walk in West Kent, with interesting landscape, natural history and archaeology. It passes through a varied landscape of downland, woodland, orchards, hop gardens, meadows and farmland, lakes and marshland, unspoilt villages and historic towns. The walk starts in Tonbridge and ends in Rochester. Links are made with the Greensand Way, North Downs Way, Saxon Shore Way and Wealdway.
The start of the walk is linked by the waymarked Eden Valley Walk (15 miles) to the Vanguard Way at Haxted. The Len Valley Walk (12 miles) connects with the Medway Valley Walk at Maidstone and following the course of the River Len also connects with the Stour Valley Walk (Kent) at Lenham, thus creating a waymarked 80 mile route between Tonbridge and the sea at Sandwich.
