! Medway KEY

The Category Medway is a subset of Kent.

*Frindsbury Extra Parish Council

'Owing to the way that the rural district's boundaries are drawn, Frindsbury Extra (which is basically a continuation of the parish of Frindsbury in Strood) has the villages of Wainscott, Upper and Lower Upnor plus other outlying settlements while Frindsbury parish, which contains the parish church of All Saints, does not. Nonetheless, Frindsbury Extra parish, with its neat rows of houses stretching down the hill on whose crest the boundary is now drawn, still contains some six thousand inhabitants, and is the third largest population centre in the district.'

*Medway Council

'Medway has nearly 186 miles (300km) of Public Rights of Way, many of which offer a chance to explore some of the beautiful countryside, such as the chalk down land at Ranscombe Farm near Cuxton, the marshes at Cliffe on the Hoo Peninsula and the riverside walks at Upnor and Hoo. For those who wish to go beyond Medway, two major trails, The North Downs Way and The Saxon Shore Way, also pass through Medway.'

*Medway Towns Footpath Group

'We are a walking group based in the Medway Towns. Our current membership is around 150 although it is unusual to have more than 40 members on a walk. We walk mainly on Sunday mornings with some longer Saturday walks and in summer occasional evening walks. We walk all year.'

Circular Walk from Rochester
Distance (miles)12

'On older versions of the Ordnance Survey Maps for the area (163 and 148) there is a recreational trail marked called "Centenary Walk Rochester". There were also similar Centenary walks devised in Canterbury and Maidstone to celebrate the centenary of the Kent County Council which took place in 1989. These walks appear to have not been promoted for some time and I have been unable to find any real information about them on the internet. On the ground the routes had once been way marked although now almost none of this way marking remains. However while the routes remained marked on the OS maps both the Canterbury and Maidstone centenary walks, which were both circular walks, were relatively easy to follow. The Rochester walk however has always appeared more confusing ...'

Tranquil Treks II in Medway

'It's now been two years since the publication of the enormously popular Tranquil Treks booklet. We were therefore delighted to be asked to introduce the second volume of walks through the hidden areas of Medway ...'
