The path over the bridge forms part of National Cycle Network route 1, which links Dover with John o'Groats.
Faversham Creek
Faversham Creek is a tidal creek running north to The Swale at Harty Ferry.
The navigable creek flows into The Swale, the Thames estuary and then to the North Sea.
The creek rises in Davington and flows through Faversham before meandering through the North Kent Marshes with its abundance of wildlife and into The Swale, making it an ideal place for walking, boating and bird watching.
Faversham Creek is the key to the existence to the town of Faversham.
Without the Creek, Faversham would never have existed. Its value for the discharge and loading of cargoes was recognised in prehistoric times, when a settlement was established not far from Standard Quay; a Roman villa (luxury farmstead) came next; and then 1,000 years later, in 1147, work began on building a huge Abbey nearby. Stone for this was imported from France through the Creek.
The National Cycle Network
The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.
National Cycle Network Route 1
National Route 1 of the National Cycle Network is a long distance cycle route connecting Dover and the Shetland Islands mainly via the east coast of England and Scotland. The route is all signed and open except between London and Woodbridge (in Suffolk) and between Whitby and Staithes (in Yorkshire).
