Chadwell St Mary to Coalhouse Fort, ending in East Tilbury for Fish and Chips
Weds 10 July 1.15-5pm
Walk 5 of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table
We set off from Chadwell St Mary Community Hub and visit Chadwell St Mary Primary to share recipes with some of the children (tbc).
Then the walk leaves the village and heads east along Linford Road, at the roundabout we join Sandy lane and walk down hill to Footpath 73 at the bottom of the hill and proceed east to FP 72 which passes through fields with horses and beautiful views of river Thames, Port of Tilbury and north Kent.
We continue east along Rectory Road to West Tilbury green where we stop for a short acoustic performance by Les Morgan and friends then continue east along Church Road, Low Street and Station Road before joining FP 200 which takes us across woodlands and farms to St Catherine’s Church in East Tilbury village. We stop here for refreshments and a chance to share stories and drawings before heading into East Tilbury for fish and chips.

Thurrock 100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. If this walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.
You need to choose walks within your capabilities; the walk leaders are experienced but must take your word that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen.
Walk leaders will be at the start of the walk regardless of the weather. In the unlikely event of any unforeseen circumstances, Kinetika reserve the right to change or cancel a walk and/or performance. Please check the website regularly for any updates or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
What to bring
Please ensure that you are properly equipped for all walks. The weather can be unpredictable so bring waterproof clothing and/or sun hats and sun cream – it’s best to be prepared for everything!
Walking boots/shoes are recommended, but otherwise please wear suitable and comfortable footwear- best to leave open-toe sandals or high heels at home. Make sure you bring a packed lunch, if necessary, and plenty to drink.
We will be taking photographs and video of this event to promote and celebrate the project in print and online. If you do not give consent to be photographed or filmed, that’s absolutely fine, please let a member of the Kinetika team know on the day.
