East Tilbury and Beyond

Achievement: Emergency Services

18th June 2022

Starts: British Bata Memorial Gardens

Ends: British Bata Memorial Gardens or Gobions Park

Booking for these walks is now closed but you can follow the routes on your own.

This event was in two parts. The first walk was a morning, scenic sea wall walk via East Tilbury Village and Coal House Fort. The second walk saw us tour around the town from Bata Memorial Gardens to Gobions Park. 

East Tilbury Primary school students led a guided tour as we walked in the shoes of those who make our community great. We arrived at Gobions Park to a musical performance from Kinetika Bloco and Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions to kick start the community celebrations.

Walkers stop at the large stone Bata war memorial to listen to Ali Pretty

T100 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.

Please note: You need to choose walks within your capabilities and ensure that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen. Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however, Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes, especially unsupervised. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.


Please ensure that you are properly equipped for all walks. The weather can be unpredictable so bring waterproof clothing and/or sun hats and sun cream – it’s best to be prepared for everything!

Walking boots/shoes are recommended, but otherwise please wear suitable and comfortable footwear- best to leave open-toe sandals or high heels at home.

Make sure you bring a packed lunch with you if necessary, and plenty to drink.

Toilet facilities can be accessed at the Bata Memorial Gardens before the start of the walk.

We encourage you to bring face coverings with you. You will not have to wear face coverings for the duration of the walk but you may wish to wear them when you enter indoor spaces on the route, although this is optional.
