Kent Group

Last updated 17 January 2022

Welcome to our LDWA Kent Group website
furthering the interests of those who enjoy long distance walking

If this is your first visit you may want to have a look at the national LDWA website to get an idea of all that we offer to those who enjoy long distance walking.

The Kent group welcomes non-members on our walks.  If you have not walked longer distances before, then you might like to start by trying one of our shorter walks in the 15 to 17 mile range.  We try to organise one of these each quarter.  For insurance reasons, you can walk with us up to three times before you need to become a member.

You can find out about where to meet us for a walk and how to join the LDWA.

Once you have joined the LDWA we would encourage you to become a member of Kent Group by ensuring that your Local Group Memberships include Kent.  A guide to managing your membership is here.

Please contact our Membership Secretary Neil Higham with any membership query or for details of how to receive our printed Kent Group Newsletter three times a year.

Kent Group AGM: Sunday 30 January at
Godmersham & Crundale Village Hall, CT4 7DR.
Please email if you plan to attend the walk or the meal.

Entries are now open for the Sevenoaks Circular 2022
