Time: 09.00

Price: Free

Meeting point: The Beach Hut Cafe, 38 Strand Street, CT13 9EU

Join our CITiZAN team on an informal stroll northwards along the Saxon Shore Way to update points on our map with the CITiZAN smartphone app and record anything new that we see. The route will pass close by the site of a Roman Amphitheatre and the site of Richborough Fort. The walk will then take you to a building just to the east of Richborough Fort, associated with the First world War Richborough Port and re-used in the Second World War as a military prison.

Come along and see the methods we use to record and monitor intertidal archaeology!

Please note that the walk is around 4 miles in total, suitable walking shoes are strongly recommended.
