The canal at Appledore
The canal at Bilsington
Many public footpaths link to the Royal Military Canal Path, so it is easy to plan circular routes that take in sections of the canal. For those who prefer to stay close to the water, you can walk the length of the canal in stages.
For details of how to walk the length of the canal over a weekend or in a day click here.
The Romney Marsh Countryside Project leads a variety of free guided walks and other activities along the Royal Military Canal. For a list of current events click here.
To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the canal’s construction, the Romney Marsh Countryside Project published a new walks pack. The pack contains 10 self-guided circular walks, ranging in length from two to nine miles, that explore the wildlife and history of the canal and its surrounding areas.
