By car:

Free parking in Davy Down car park

By bus:

The 22 bus which runs between Grays and Aveley stops at Pilgrims Lane/ Caravan Park, 5mins walk from Davy Down Car Park. 370 bus also runs nearby.


Due to the marshland, the terrain consists mainly of uneven and muddy ground unsuitable for wheelchairs and buggy users, a shorter loop on paved paths is possible for those who prefer and would be suitable for wheelchair and buggy users.

T100 walks are of different lengths and on varying terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. We have designed our programme with accessibility in mind so we hope that there is something for everyone to enjoy. If you would like to discuss this please contact: nicole@kinetika.co.uk
