Clowes Wood is a delightful mixed woodland near Whitstable, with mature birch and coniferous trees.
Its many paths and convenient car park makes Clowes Wood an ideal location for walkers - especially with dogs.
The wood covers a total area of over 236 hectares.

Not enough dog poo bins. You need walk leaflets available in the car park to help make sense of all the paths.

Lovely place, though could be made better.
1. There is no sign post of the history
2. No signed route (we have found)
3. We have seen no poo bins and unfortunately many people have left the dog mess on paths.
Other than that its a great place to walk the dogs.

we went to clows wood for the first time this sunday [05/10/14]thought it was a lovely place and really enjoyed our walk. we did however think that a few maps showing where the various paths lead would've been useful, especially to people like us who had never been there before [we even had some people asking us if the path we were on led back to the car park].... its a small gripe and its definitely not something that would stop us going there again
