Walk

Distance: 15 miles

  • First mile of this walk: Mile 420
  • Last mile of this walk: Mile 435

We join the Thames Estuary Path today, with a side trip to the Wat Tyler Country Park too.

Afterwards, we walk through Corringham and Stanford-le-Hope.

InspiralLondon are looking after this day of the programme under the direction of founder Charlie Fox.

InspiralLondon facilitates and curates artworks, research and interventions that interrogate the city and its hinterlands, with particular focus on: placemaking, experience culture and emotional capitalism, urban ecology and sustainable futures, community and well-being.

“Walking, a practice of on the ground mapping, allows us to imagine together other cities, different times, and worlds, as we confront the reality of our ever-changing metropoles.”  Charlie Fox 2017

InspiralLondon are looking after this section of the walk and will be curating activities along the route.

If you would like to select a mile along this stretch, please contact contact@inspirallondon.com

Everyone that selects a mile is invited to submit some photos and words about it. If you send your images in by 9th April, they will be used as inspiration for the silk pennant to represent that mile. Find out more in the activity pack – see the button below.

Eventually the aim is to create a giant story map that unfolds along the route, showing all the images and words people have sent in.

Route: Walk 29

Mile Marker Map

Start points of walks are shown with bouncing markers. Click a marker to reveal what mile number it is and what day of the walk it occurs on.

 

 Please note: The routes and mile markers were mapped in February. It is possible that some changes will be needed before the walk itself takes place, for example because of temporary path closures, weather events, and tidal conditions. If there are changes, we will walk an alternative route that is as close as possible to the planned route, and keep the mile markers as close to the originals too. ‘Miles’ at the start and end of days may be slightly more or less than one mile.
