Royal Military Canal
This canal was started in 1804 as a defence against invasion by
Napoleon and is now important to maintain the drainage of Romney
March. It stretches for 28 miles from Seabrook near Hythe to
Cliffend between Rye and Hastings and, thanks to the efforts of Kent
Ramblers, there is a path running alongside most of it.
You can read about the successful efforts of Kent Ramblers to secure
the right to walk along part of the canal in an article
from the September 1993, March 1994
and September 1994 editions and two
articles from 1997 editions of Kent Area News.
