Route information
Our run starts from Brockhill Country Pak and will be covering a distance of 8 miles. We will explore parts of the Saxon Shore Way, passing Lympne Castle, a picturesque Grade 1 listed building dating back to the 12th Century as well as the remains of Stutfall Castle which is thought to have been abandoned in AD 350. We will descend down a footpath which runs along the edges of Port Lympne Wildlife Park (if we are lucky we may see an animal or two, no guarantee though), beforel heading along the Royal Military Canal to pick-up the path to take us back up to enjoy views of the coast towards Hythe. Finally, we will make our way back to our start point at Brockhill Country Park and a well earned cuppa.
What's included
  • Guided by an experienced Trail Runner & UK Athletics Coach

Our run will start from Brockhill Country Park Sandling Road, Hythe, Kent, CT21 4HL
By car
Follow signs from the M20 junction 11, towards Hythe. Then follow brown tourism signs for Brockhill Country Park, which shares a joint entrance with Brockhill School.
By bus
You can get to Brockhill Country Park via the Stagecoach 10/10A or 18 bus routes and busses run up to every 30 minutes at peak times. As it's only a 7 minute journey from Hythe, a 31 minute journey from Folkestone, a 49 minute from Canterbury or a 1 hour and 5 minute journey from Ashford, why not consider using the bus to visit us?
By train
The nearest train station is Sandling (approx 1 mile from Brockhill Country Park), with hourly trains from London Charing Cross and Dover Priory. Turn left out of the station and walk for 15 minutes along Sandling Road to our pedestrian entrance. Just a 7 minute journey from Folkestone Central, 11 minutes from Ashford International and 18 minutes from Dover Priory, why not use the train for a green day out in nature?
