Purfleet-on-Thames to Grays
31st July 2021 10am – 1.30pm
Starts: The Beacon, Purfleet-on-Thames
Ends: Thameside Theatre, Grays
The start of this walk joins with Beach of Dreams walk 34.
This the the first of two walks today, if you wish to join us for the whole day, please book the second walk too.
The route is beside the Thames almost the whole way alongside the famous mile long grafitti wall. There is plenty of industry, but wilder patches too, as we cross under the QEII Bridge on our way to Grays. We will visit St Clement’s Church, a Grade I listed building famous for being featured in the film ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’
Please bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink.
Please note that once the walk commences there are few ways to leave the route due to the river on the right and industrial sites on the left. It is possible to leave the walk at St Clement’s Church and head to Chafford Hundred Station approx. 1 mile away at intu Lakeside. The path from St Clements comes out on the roundabout on A126 London Road which is near Ikea.
