Farningham Road to Sole Street Walk

A walk of contrasts, urban sprawl, and then caught by what it may have been like a hundred or more years ago, coming across the Wheatsheaf pub and Chapter House Farm. Plenty of good pubs along the way.


17.2km (10.7 miles) Farningham Road → Green Street Green: 5¾km → Southfleet: 3¾km → Nash Street: 5km → Sole Street station: 2¾km

OS Map

Explorer 162, Landranger 177.




A walk of contrasts, urban sprawl, housing developments, busy roads, and then once or twice you are caught by what it may have been like a hundred or more years ago, coming across the Wheatsheaf pub, passing by Chapter House Farm. Alas all too brief glimpses into the past before you return to present day reality. On a more positive note, there are plenty of good pubs along the way to wash away any feelings of melancholy.


Trains from Victoria to Farningham Road; journey time 45 minutes. Buy a day return to Sole Street.

Suggest departure from Victoria at around 10.00 am if you want to stop for lunch halfway through the walk at either The Ship Inn (Southfleet) or Manor Farm Barn
