Walks And Walking – West Hythe Walk In Kent
This is a very easy 4 mile circular West Hythe walk in Kent along a short section of the Royal Military Canal Path, up through Port Lympne Wild Animal Park and then back along the ridgeway to Shepway Cross and the car park at Lympne Park Wood.
From the Royal Military Canal car park at West Hythe we walked left along the main Royal Military Canal Path which also a part of the Saxon Shore Way.
After a short while we could see the remains of Stutfall Castle and the Lemanis Roman Fort.
We continued our walk along the main track, passing the National Cycle Network blue waymarker to Rye where we found a small bridge over the Royal Military Canal.
We then rejoined the Royal Military Canal Path with Lympne Castle now coming in to view on the right hand side.
At the bridleway signpost we walked right up the main track through Port Lympne Wild Animal Park where the blackberries were as plentiful as the views of many different animals we saw.
At the top of the hill we walked right following the signpost for the Saxon Shore Way along the ridgeway to Lympne Castle where we stopped briefly to enjoy the views from Millennium Wood out to Dymchurch, Botolph’s Bridge and the Canal Cutting.
Eventually the track joined a lane where we then walked right along the road to pass Lympne Castle and the Church.
We continued our walk up the lane passed the football fields on our left hand side to walk right at the next footpath sign down steps with the metal handrails to a stile just before Shepway Cross.
We then crossed the field heading downwards towards the road where we then walked right all the way down to the car park.

YOU NEED TO TAKE THE LYMPNE WALK OFF YOUR WEBSITE, WE ARE A TINY VILLAGE AND WE ARE BEING BOMBARDED WITH LOADS OF WALKERS THROUGH OUR VILLAGE, TRASHING OUR WOODLAND AND LEAVING THEIR RUBBISH, ALSO BLOCKING ALL OF OUR RESIDENTIAL ROADS WITH THEIR CARS, PARKING ALL DAY SO RESIDENTS CANT PARK…..WE DO NOT NEED ALL THESE PEOPLE IN OUR VILLAGE THERE ARE ELDERLY PEOPLE HERE AND THEY ARE VERY UPSET WITH ALL THE PEOPLE AND NOISE, THEY CANT DO THEIR USUAL LOCAL WALK THROUGH THEIR OWN VILLAGE BECAUSE YOU ARE ADVERTISING THIS WALK TO THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE !!!!!
Sue you are not alone in this . I am lucky enough to live in Deal on the seafront . We have been innudated since the end of the first lockdown . I am afraid with nothing else to do you cannot blame people for talking a walk . What they should do though is take their rubbish home with them and respect the parking etc . Hopefully once venues re open things will calm down .
We have suffered this for a year now, it was even busy in the winter , , but people arent coming to do this walk, they are coming because they are promised exotic animals at the zoo…you cant see these by coming in to our village, you can only see these at the bottom of the hill so there is no need to have hundreds of people walking through our village, some people are so selfish, we have a lot of elderly people living here that are too scared to go for their normal walk because there are so many people about …3 people from the same family in the village have died from the virus, so nobody should be coming here, we are not a theme park or a holiday resort, just a tiny ( once peaceful ) village and that is how we want to stay!!
You know what, wherever it is you go on holiday.. the probably don’t want you there either!
I dont go on holiday as I have lovely countryside here, when it isnt being trashed by tourists !!
Oh my what a bitter comment. Families wanting to walk through the countryside encourages children to enjoy the outside and wildlife. I’m sorry but if you don’t like it maybe you should live somewhere less photogenic
I live here because of the peace and quiet….we used to have, over 40 years and nobody but residents, then we are over run by people who dont know how to enjoy the countryside except trash it…..that is why I dont want people here, I have no objection to anyone walking in the countryside as long as you respect the residents and wildlife that call it their home…..why would you go anywhere and trash it….what are these people teaching their children !!
Please don’t stereotype all the walkers 🙂 … not everyone is out to trash your area… and not everyone is lucky to be able to live in nice quiet village like yours. Public footpaths are there for the public to use…albeit for walks, not for vandalism. 🙂
