The village of Kemsing

Kemsing – a Kentish village

Uly and I live in the Kent village of Kemsing, situated at the foot of the North Downs on the route of the Pilgrim’s Way.

We are lucky, there are so many fabulous walks on our doorstep or within a very short drive. The north Kent coast is not far away either and you’ll find names such as Whitstable (famous for its oysters) and Chatham (ancient ship building town where King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I had their fleets deigned and built). Rochester Cathedral and Castle are half an hour away. Canterbury, and its cathedral, has been the destination of so many pilgrims along the centuries and is about one hour’s drive away from us.
