The Great Stour Way opened in May 2011, It is a three mile surfaced shared use path between Canterbury and Chartham running alongside the river. The path is part of the National Cycle Network, route 18, and for people from Canterbury it's a gateway to the Stour Valley and to Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Seats have been installed along the path and an impressive picnic table with carved river wildlife by the old Elham Valley Railway embankment.
Because livestock is present along the path there are a number of cattle grids and wooden kissing gates. The cattle grids allow cyclists to pass over whilst the kissing gates have been designed for large mobility vehicles.
