Whether walking or cycling there are great green transport links, avoiding traffic, exhaust fumes and busy streets running into and through Ashford’s Green Corridor.
There is a large network of paths which is popular for strolling, dog walking and for getting through and around town. Some paths, such as the Stour Valley Walk, take you out into the countryside around Ashford and beyond. Most of the paths in Ashford are surfaced and provide access to many areas for wheelchairs and disability vehicles – however, please note these are usually shared use cycle and footpaths.

As the map below shows, a section of National Cycle Route 18, which connects Canterbury and Tonbridge Wells, runs through town and the Green Corridor – from Kennington in the east to Buxford Meadow in the west. A newer Willesborough Dykes Greenway Path – a multi user route, joins Park Farm in the south to the Green Corridor A number of Ashford’s districts have smaller cycle /foot paths that link to it, connecting communities around Ashford to the town centre and to each other. All of which connects to Ashfords’ Domestic and International Railway Station.
