Elham Valley Way

A 22.5-mile (40 km) recreational walking route passes through the Elham valley (a chalk valley carved by the River Nailbourne situated in the North Downs in East Kent). The route starts at Hythe and finishes at Canterbury Cathedral. It utilises much of the dismantled route of the Elham Valley Railway , constructed in the 19th century and connecting Folkestone and Canterbury. This was closed in 1947, although a railway museum is located at Peene, immediately north of the Channel Tunnel station.

Summerhouse Hill :: TR1637

Summerhouse Hill is a chalk hill near Folkestone in Kent. It forms part of the North Downs and reaches a height of 148 metres above sea level. The hill has a distinctive conical shape and lies detached from the main escarpment of the Downs. The hill's name derives from a gazebo which was built on the summit of the hill by the Drake-Brockman family who used to own the land. However, the gazebo was burnt to the ground by a prankster on Guy Fawkes night in 1935, and the land has passed into the ownership of the Ministry of Defence who use it for army training.
