Faversham and Oare Creek - Walking workshop

02/06/2020  |  1 p.m.



For this workshop the plan is to walk westwards around the inner arms of Faversham and Oare Creeks, recording any archaeological features we see with the CITiZAN app and precision RTK kit. This is to ‘ground truth’ the Historic England commissioned Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment Survey as only the desk-based research phase was ever completed here.

We’d love people to join us to learn or brush up on CITiZAN app skills, to learn how to use an RTK and to develop feature identification and foreshore monitoring skills. This walk will be c 5km long and whether this lasts one day or two days really depends on how much there is to record, and how much of the creek edges are accessible  - this is true exploratory fieldwork as well as a walking workshop! Meeting place TBC but likely to be near to Shepherd Neame's Faversham Brewery.

Register your interest by emailing Lara on lband@mola.org.uk, Eventbrite booking will be set up in due course and we'll email you to prompt you to book. Although this event is currently planned to go ahead, MOLA/CITiZAN take the health and welfare of our staff, volunteers and the wider community very seriously. We will review the situation on 1st June and, in line with government guidance, may have to cancel this event to help safeguard against the spread of COVID-19. We'll inform you of any changes if they occur.

This is one of three walking workshops in which we intend to cover the Swale from The Sportsman at Seasalter to the western point of Conyer Creek between May and June. See our main events page for details of the other walking workshops.
