Local Family Walks and Places to Visit

Early in 2024 we asked our families to suggest good local walks, and places not too far away, for fresh air and fun!

Here are their suggestions.

Obviously school takes no responsibility for these walks or the website links and we suggest you check details and assess risk before setting out on any walk.

Darland Banks - a short car ride through the back roads.

Apple orchards in Newington - great place for a family walk

Watling Place Estate (Newington) playground and Roman temple.

Newington Recreation ground

Capstone Country Park has a good play area and upper field for dog walks

Milton Creek Country Park

King George V Park's-Field,-Sittingbourne great in autumn for all the conkers!
