This walk is now over but we have left the walk info below in case you wish to replicate it yourself.
The original walk happened on: Saturday 14 July 12:30-3pm
intu Lakeside to Davy Down and back featuring the giant Tilbury docker puppet!
A leisurely walk from intu Lakeside, skirting Chafford Hundred and arriving at Davy Down Riverside Park for ice-cream and refreshments. While at Davy Down there was a chance to explore the Riverside Park and find out about the historic Pumping Station.
The return route to intu Lakeside took us past Kushi and the Oriental Pan Asian food offerings, finishing with a complimentary taster menu experience at Wagamama on The Boardwalk at intu Lakeside.
We were even visited by Kinetika’s giant Tilbury Docker puppet that made a special appearance at the start and end of the walk!
Huge thanks to Lesley Robinson for leading this fascinating walk.

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.
