Reporting problems on a public right of way.

Its a real pleasure to be able to walk along our footpaths, climb over styles and walk through

kissing gates. The Wye Footpath Preservation Society  have regular walks around the Wye countryside reporting obstructions and dangerous styles along the way.

However, if you should come across an obstacle or dangerous style, did you know that Kent County Council have an excellent website whereby you can report such things yourself? Once you have signed in you can go to a map and by clicking and enlarging, you can locate the exact spot and report your findings.

Your assistance will be much appreciated.

Cycle route 18

Patrick Keegan and his son Nick will with the help of friends and supporters be able enjoy the final results of all their labour in making a dream come true this coming May 3rd.

Route 18 is a traffic free cycle path between Godmersham and Chartham. It offers stunning views of the Stour Valley and Chilham Castle.

With much dedication and in memory of his Mother Catha, Nick has worked tirelessly for this route to extend to Chilham, Wye and Ashford. Along the way will be an incredible oak seat for cyclists and walkers to rest a while opposite Chilham Castle. This will be known as Catha’s seat.

Nick who grew up in Wye and lives with his Father in Upper Bridge Street has been persistent in turning his Mother’s work into a reality. This has even included a sponsored bike ride to Istanbul.

There is an annual picnic at Catha’s Seat for walkers and cyclists. For full details of the story http://www.cathas-seat.org/
