This walk visits the sites of two chalk pits, excavated to serve the once hugely successful cement industries. We’ll explore Chafford Gorges Nature Reserve, where you can still see remnants of the railway tunnels and tracks built to take the chalk to the River Thames, and hear from education ranger Andrew on the geology of the reserves.

These walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. Download our map here and use the colour coding so that you can decide if a route will be suitable for you.
