! Dover KEY

The Category Dover is a subset of Kent.


The following Dover Entities do NOT (currently) have Records in 'Open Paths and Trails'. Here, clicking on a Title of interest should link you to a relevant external Website (or Facebook Page):

- Dover District Council

*Deal Town Council

'Deal is charming to explore on foot, from gentle walks following the sea to Sandwich or Kingsdown, to more demanding long distance footpaths... A great way to discover Deal’s fascinating and notorious past of smugglers, revenue men, women of the night, murders and shipwrecks is by following the historic town trail.'

*Dover and Thanet Rights of Way Society

'Our walks take place all year round on public rights of way, in the districts of Dover, Thanet and sometimes Canterbury ... Members work with other local walking groups to help keep rights of way in good order and accessible to all.'

*Samphire Hoe Country Park

'Samphire Hoe is an amazing place. There is something for everyone who enjoys the outdoors and wildlife: a stunning location and outstanding scenery, peace and quiet, walks, wildflowers, birds, sea angling and picnics. And the further you go from the car park, the wilder the site becomes. This tranquil setting never fails to impress, with many visitors coming back time and time again. In 2013, more than 80,000 visitors explored the nature reserve. Most of the Hoe is accessible for wheelchair and pushchairs and there is a recommended route sign posted "Front path" and "West shore".'

JTrails - Dover

'The origins of the Dover Jewish community are surrounded in some mystery. The community may have begun in the medieval period, though the evidence is incomplete.'

Miner's Way Trail
Distance (miles)27

'Winds its way through the picturesque countryside of East Kent, linking together pretty villages, small farmsteads, grand country estates and remains of this area's industrial and mining heritage. Much of this arable landscape, profuse with hedges and woodlands, has not changed since Saxon times and the names of the villages and hamlets you pass on the route are firmly lodged in their Old English origins.'

The White Cliffs of Dover

'These high chalk cliffs look out onto the English Channel, giving far-reaching views towards the French coast. The best way to see the cliffs is to take a walk along the coastal path towards South Foreland Lighthouse. You’ll get a great view of the cliffs and also see the chalk grassland that’s home to so many unusual plants and insects like the chalkhill blue butterfly and the pyramidal orchid.'
