Purfleet-on-Thames to Purfleet Beacon

Walk 33: Friday 30th July 2021

On this page


Distance: 11 miles

Almost a circular walk. The Mardyke is our companion at Davy Down. We then take three of the Chafford Gorges before passing the Kinetika studios on our return to Purfleet-on-Thames.  On arrival at Purfleet Beacon, walkers have the opportunity to join a short T100 Dreaming walk around the area to celebrate the local community.  Read more about the T100 walk.


To all Walkers

Walk Guidelines

Important: Markers for mile numbers 377 & 385 have moved on the day of the walk to make the route safer. The positions will remain the same on the storymap.

There are two official meeting locations per day; at the start and near the mid-point. If you only wish to walk your one-mile stretch and join the walking party as it comes through your section, you can specify to meet ‘at my mile’ on the booking form.  If you are meeting ‘at my mile’, please understand it is difficult for us to specify the exact time the main walking party will arrive. To help you estimate this, use the scheduled times below and add 30 mins per mile to get to your mile. We are using a walking speed of 2 miles an hour as a guide.

If you don’t receive any emails about the walks, please check your spam folder or email info@beachofdreams.co.uk

Route: Walk 33

The pink route line is the T100 festival walk

 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. If route lines appear to stray off public rights of way, this will not happen in reality and route lines will be adjusted as more accurate information from walk leaders is available. ‘Miles’ at the start and end of days may be slightly more or less than one mile.
