Distance 11 Miles
This walk is in a most unusual setting exploring a huge and virtually deserted area of marshland alongside the Thames Estuary. This area is full of historical interest, it being the setting for Charles Dickens 'Great Expectations'. In addition there is much evidence of WWII, not to mention its chequered smuggling history! The date of the walk has been planned so that the state of the tide should give us the opportunity for swimming in the Thames at some stage during the walk.
