The Royal Saxon Way

The Royal Saxon Way

Recently established, the Royal Saxon Way is a 36 mile route across the grain of the North Downs from Folkestone to Minster-in-Thanet via Lyminge.

It links 16 historic parish churches, many with Anglo-Saxon origins, and celebrating powerful Anglo-Saxon royal women.  Uniquely, there are relics of the original saints at either end: St Eanswythe (Ethelburga’s niece) at Folkestone and St Mildrith (Ethelburga’s great great niece) at Minster
