The Royal Military Canal Path, and the other long-distance footpaths in Kent

The Royal Military Canal Path is a long-distance path in England, mainly following the Royal Military Canal. Its end points are Seabrook, Kent (51°04′19″N 1°07′20″E / 51.0720°N 1.1221°E / 51.0720; 1.1221 (Royal Military Canal Path, Seabrook terminus)), and Pett Level, East Sussex (50°53′19″N 0°41′02″E / 50.8887°N 0.6840°E / 50.8887; 0.6840 (Royal Military Canal Path, Pett Level terminus)), and it runs for 27 miles (43 km). It is a canal-side path and fringes the northern edge of Romney Marsh. The canal is an early-19th-century defence against a possible invasion by Napoleon, and it is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a SSSI. Links are made with the Saxon Shore Way at Appledore and West Hythe.[1][2]
