Swale

apologises to our one reader, the young lady Wendy in Australia for the lack of walks lately but a combination of lousy weather and other jobs meant we had not had a walk for weeks
Despite the fact that it was very overcast and slight rain 7 of us met up at Sittingbourne railway station where we caught the local train to Swale , used to be called  Swale Halt
He we alighted right next to the Kingsferry bridges .
Crossing the road we made our way to the sea wall and headed East towards Ridham Docks , this was never going to be a pretty walk especially this first part past the Recycling centre and the docks
After skirting the docks we made for the footpath by the side of Milton Creek . Unfortunately it was low tide so lots of mud on view and a few timbers from badges of years gone by
This eventually leads into the country park and then the industrial area of Sittingbourne and simply home . Roughly 7 miles but interesting
