Can you see the blackberry flowers?  Do you think this plant will be a useful source for food?
This is called a kissing gate - Why do you think it got this name?
This bridge crosses the drainage ditch that runs alongside the canel.What use do you think it has now?
Look out as you walk for some of the different trees and bushes that have grown up along the canal.
Do you think these trees were here when the canal was built?
Look carefully at the edge of the canal. How many things can you see using the canal as a habitat?
What colour are the waterlilies? These waterlilies are quite rare - How would you describe the flowers?
This wide, grassy space was used as a track for the soldiers to march along - What else do you think needed to travel along this road?
Look at this landscape. How would you describe it?

There are lots of holes to be seen as we walk along the canal. Who do you think made them?
The canal was used as a line of defence during the second world war. Do you know what these are called?
We stopped for a rest - can you see how the track changes shape?

Here you can see the drainage ditch - can you see if there are any animals or plants living here?
This tree has died but is still important  - why do you think this is?

We found some animals helping to keep the footpath walkable - Can you see what they are?
The canal is now used to help keep the area from flooding - ditrches from the surrounding area empty into the canal and it's ditch.
There are some roads that cross the canal. It makes it easy for fishermen and nature lovers to use the canal.
We found some more animals keeping the grass short to make it easier for us to walk. How else do you think they could keep the path clear?

How is this part of the canal different to the first part we walked?
Look across the canal towards Romney Marsh. How would you describe it?
As we walked we counted how many Pillboxes we found. Can you think why they got this name?
100_1125
Paths and tracks join the canal. Where do you think this one might go?
You can see a church in the distance. Why do you think it was built some way from the canal?
How do you think the church would have been useful in the dqays before elecricty and telephones?
There are other ways of travelling over the marsh. What do you think this bridge might be for?
We enjoyed  standing under the bridge and listnening to the noise
Have you worked out what uses this bridge?
Another pillbox - How many do you think we found?
We followed a footpath away from the canal - when we got back to school we looked at it on the map.

Can you see where we were going? It wasn't easy to find the path.
Can you see how different the ground looks as we walked away from the canal towards Hamstreet Village?
The reeds made it difficult to walk in straight line - What do you think the reeds tell us?
We found lots of stiles which we had to climb.
The safest way to cross the road was to go under it.

Our path crossed a field of flax. You must keep carefully to the path or so you don't spoil the famer's crop.
Finally we can see the rooftops of Hamstreet.
Do you think these houses are new or old? What do you think might happen to this field in the next 10 years?
Can you see how well we are keeping to the path?
You have to look carefully to see where the footpath goes. We were 10 minutes from school
