Orsett Fen to Chadwell St Mary 

This walk happened on Tues 9th July 12.45pm – 5.30pm but you could follow it yourself using the information below.

Walk 4 of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table

Leaving the Church, walk to Pound Lane, then Malting lane and have a look at Bishop Bonner’s mound, from where you can see across the fens to Bulphan. Then walk to Old Hall Farm, Malthouse, Penn Close, The Old Bakery and visit the graveyard to consider some of the old families of Orsett.  It’s a great location to stop off along the way to draw, share stories and have a light picnic.

After exploring Orsett you can take a leisurely walk over to Chadwell St Mary where we originally had a friendly BBQ at the Chadwell St Mary Centre.

Thurrock 100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven.  If this walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.
