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.

Select a mile near you and 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.

Be quick! Once a mile is booked on the form below, it is unavailable for anyone else, so select yours as soon as possible.

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.

Select your mile!

Find the mile number of the mile you want by clicking the map markers above. The mile numbers are revealed in the marker info-windows. Use the mile number to reserve it on the form below.

As soon as a mile is booked it is removed as a choice and no-one else can book it. So if the number you want isn’t there, it has already been taken. There are plenty to choose from, so look for another nearby. After completing the form you will receive a welcome email confirming your selection.

Everyone who books a mile receives a reserved place on the walk. If you can’t attend the walk there is a place on the form to let us know.

If you have questions, please check our FAQs first.
