Two Islands Pilgrimage Walk

93 km / 58 miles

Kent
From Ramgate on the Isle of Thanet to the Minster Abbey on the Isle of Sheppey this varied route links many 6th and 7th century Christian sites together.

Apart from the many churches along the route, some of which are Grade I Listed, there are other sites of interest including two National Nature Reserves, at Stodmarsh and Blean Woods; Fordwich, the smallest town in England; the cathedral city of Canterbury, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Faversham, the oldest market town in Kent.

This is one of Revd. John Merrill's Pilgrim Walks.
