Canterbury Cross in yellow and route nameCanterbury Outer Ring

34 km / 21 miles
The Outer Ring circles Canterbury's countryside. The River Stour winds its way through the low chalk downs, and hop gardens are interspersed with ancient woodlands. The outstanding feature of the outer ring is the traditionally managed coppiced woods; Whitehill, Trenley, Dengrove, Larkey Valley. These together with the high oak forest of Church Wood are beautiful at any time of year. The highlight is the Spring when they are carpeted by glorious displays of wood anemones, bluebells, primroses and wild garlic.

A guidebook by David Reekie is in both paperback and Kindle formats and is listed below.
