Walk 6 of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table

East Tilbury to Thurrock Thameside Nature Park is a pleasant and flat walk through a diverse range of habitats. We originally took the opportunity to stop at Thameside Thurrock nature park for a picnic and an opportunity to share stories and drawings, and we can recommend it as a good place for a break.  The nature park is built on a former landfill site, with superb views over Mucking Flats SSSI and the Thames Estuary, and it is a tremendous habitat for coastal and wetland wildlife.
On leaving the nature park the route follows the estuary path through Stanford Warren Nature Reserve, across Corringham and Fobbing Marshes, past Fobbing Village and across Vange Marshes to Pitsea.
