Via Francigena. The Road to Rome

VFE01 - Canterbury to Shepherdswell 10.4 miles

Total length
17.2 km
Difficulty by foot

Leaving the hustle and bustle of Canterbury you will set off along the Elham Valley Way through a peaceful farming landscape, on through small villages and past the striking Higham Park.

Along the way you can take one final glance back towards Canterbury Cathedral, but the area’s heritage does not end in Canterbury; the once grand St Augustine’s Abbey was the burial place for Kings of Kent, built by St Augustine, a man whose mission was to convert the Kingdom of Kent to Christianity.
