North Downs Way Charity Hike
This 11km hike will be led by two North Downs Way Ambassadors who will share their knowledge of the various points of interest along the way. Half way through there will be a stop at the Coppice Oratory (a newly built artwork at the first sight of the Canterbury Cathedral on this part of the North Downs Way), where the architects of the project, Tchonova + La Roi, will speak about their ideas and the making of the Coppice Oratory.
