Langdon Hills Circular Walk

A Natural Resource: Volunteers

12th June 2022

Starts & Ends: Essex Wildlife Trust centre, Langdon Hills

Booking for this walk is now closed but you can follow the route on your own.

In partnership with local volunteers, during this walk we celebrated Thurrock’s green spaces and those that help to maintain them for others. A circular lake side nature-filled walk starting and ending at the new Essex Wildlife Trust (EWT) centre at Langdon Hills.

We were led by local volunteers on an explorative and engaging tour of the site and its impressive community garden.

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 in the Essex Wildlife Trust Centre.

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 if you enter indoor spaces on the route, although this is optional.
