    From tidal marsh to golden coastline, this stage takes you to the seaside via a historic church with celebrity connections.Start by walking northeast along Oare Creek to Faversham Creek, which you follow right back to Davington (less than a mile from where you started). Here, you find the Church of St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence. This church is notable for a handful of reasons. It is 12th-century, Grade I-listed, the oldest in the Faversham area, is unusually dedicated to two saints — and is right next door to Bob Geldof’s home.You cross Faversham Creek via New Bridge and hike along its eastern bank, around Nagden Marshes and onto the coastline. You continue along the stunning shoreline of Whitstable Bay to the town of Whitstable. Expect sweeping views, lots of wildlife, and plenty of freshly-caught fish and chips. Whitstable has an excellent range of accommodation, places for food and drink, shops, and other attractions.
