T100 Dreaming walking festival

Langdon Hills 


28th July 2021

Starts & ends: Westley Heights

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

A Westley Heights circular guided walk. On arrival at the site we were joined by Kinetika’s artistic director to discuss the dreaming pennants that were created to represent individual dreams linked to miles around Langdon Hills.

We then walked through the forestry of Langdon Hills country park focusing on the importance of maintaining forestry and the essential role public green spaces have played throughout lockdown.

Getting back to our roots, we explored the natural landscape, its inhabitants and we took in scenic views of the Land of the Fanns area; which stretches through Thurrock and beyond.

The day ended at lunch time, during which time an artist led workshop took place encouraging us to reflect on our dreams for our local green spaces.

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 if necessary, and plenty to drink.

You need to choose walks within your capabilities and ensure that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen. 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 one walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.

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.


If you take any of your own photos whilst taking part in the walk, we would love to see them. Share your photos on social media with #T100Dreaming.
