East Tilbury to Pitsea
Thurs 11th July 10.45am-5.30pm
Walk 6 of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table
East Tilbury to Thurrock Thameside Nature Park is a pleasant and flat walk through a diverse range of habitats. We stop at Thameside Thurrock nature park for a picnic and an opportunity to share stories and drawings. The nature park is built on a former landfill site, with superb views over Mucking Flats SSSI and the Thames Estuary, and it is a tremendous habitat for coastal and wetland wildlife.
On leaving the nature park the route follows the estuary path through Stanford Warren Nature Reserve, across Corringham and Fobbing Marshes, past Fobbing Village and across Vange Marshes to Pitsea.

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.
