Guide to the Kent Coast Path: Part 1: Camber to
This 80 page guide covers the first section of the
England Coast Path to be opened in Kent. Ramblers' volunteers have been labouring for
years both to get the path open and to prepare what we hope is the best
guide possible to the pleasures and interest of the route. The
path was formally opened on 19 July 2016.
This guide is in full colour with detailed
1:25,000 maps based on Ordnance Survey data and enhanced by the local
knowledge of the authors and others in Kent Ramblers. There are
full descriptions of the route and of the many points of interest that
you will pass along the way.
There is also much background material about the
history, geology and geography of the area.
The cover price is £7.50 but we are currently
offering copies for just £6.50 including postage and packing.
