Walk 5 of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table
After setting off from Chadwell St Mary Community Hub, the walk leaves the village and heads east along Linford Road. At the roundabout join Sandy lane and walk down hill to Footpath 73 at the bottom of the hill, and proceed east to Footpath 72 which passes through fields with horses and beautiful views of river Thames, Port of Tilbury and north Kent.
Continue east along Rectory Road to West Tilbury green, then along Church Road, Low Street and Station Road before joining FP 200 which travels across woodlands and farms to St Catherine’s Church in East Tilbury village. If they are open you can have a look inside the Church, or visit Coalhouse Fort. A great way to end the walk is with the legendary fish and chips from George’s fish bar in East Tilbury.

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.
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, especially unsupervised. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
