This walk begins at Purfleet station, and explores the historic river frontage with its many reminders of Thurrock’s industrial heritage. You walk beside the river, over the Dartford Tunnel and under the QE2 Bridge, passing the Graffiti Wall and the old wharves, as well as the tiny church of St Clement, featured in Four Weddings and a Funeral, before arriving at Grays Beach Riverside Park.
