The Parish Council has published a map showing all the public rights of way within the parish and all the published walking routes passing through the parish. This is available on the Visit Lyminge Parish visitor leaflet, and can be viewed on the noticeboard in the carpark in Station Road, Lyminge CT18 8HS.

Walking routes passing through the parish


The interactive map of Public Rights of Way maintained by Kent County Council is available by following the link. There are many resources available in print and on-line to help with planning a walk. Paths in the parish tend to be well-used and kept open, but do bear in mind that paths can become blocked and stiles may sometimes need repair. The KCC map will show where faults have been reported.



The following published walking routes all pass through the parish, and further information on each can be obtained by following the links:


The Elham Valley Way

The Royal Saxon Way

The North Downs Way

The Saxon Shore Way

The Old Way   


Circular walks in and around the parish


Working in partnership with Lyminge Parish Council, the Elham Valley Walkers Group has developed a network of seven circular walks that all begin in the Station Road Carpark, Lyminge, making use of the many footpaths and bridlepaths in the area. The circular walks around Lyminge are available for download.  EVWG have developed further walks focused on Elham and the area between Barham and Patrixbourne. Together these routes cover the whole of the Elham Valley, and you can find more information on the EVWG website.
