Summary: The Royal Military Canal Path mainly follows a canal-side path, which fringes the northern edge of Romney Marsh and which was built in the early 19th century as a defence against a possible invasion by Napoleon. The Canal is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a SSSI. From the start of the path at Pett Level the walk visits Winchelsea, Rye, Appledore, Warehorne, Hamstreet, Ruckinge, Bilsington and West Hythe before finishing beyond Hythe on the western edge of Folkestone.
