Walks And Walking – Port Lympne Walk In Kent
This is a 5 mile circular Port Lympne walk in Kent from the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park car park down through Stutfall Castle to the Royal Military Canal Path and back via Court-at-Street.
Please note: the footpaths on this walk do not allow for social distancing as outlined in the latest government guidelines in response to the COVID 19 outbreak.
From the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park car park on Aldington Road we walked left along the road until we reached the first waymarker on the right hand side heading down a track signposted for the Saxon Shore Way.
We followed this track to the outskirts of the Millennium Wood, just after Lympne Plate, and as the path started to bend to the left we walked right down the steep slope to steps.
We continued our walk down to the waymarker for the Romney Marsh Countryside Project which opened up to fantastic views out to the coast.
We followed the track down through the remains of Stutfall Castle and Lemanis Roman Fort with Lympne Castle now in view behind us.
At the Royal Military Canal Path we walked right following it all the way passed Aldergate Bridge where we then walked right by the footpath signpost.
We continued our walk through the blue gate following the track to the right up in to Aldergate Wood.
We followed the track up to a stile and across a field to a gate where we then walked left up the lane to rejoin Aldington Road at Court-at-Street.
We continued our walk right down the road and back to the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park car park, one hour and forty minutes later.
