A gentle walk from Purfleet-on-Thames Beacon to High House Production Park, via Heavenly Greens Fruit and Veg to hear from local key workers, followed by activities as part of the Essex Book Festival! We arrive at High House Production Park, welcomed by Kinetika’s giant skeleton puppet ‘The Midnight Robber’ for Essex Book Festival’s ‘Criminally Good Day’ event. There will be site tours, talks, craft and writing workshops for all ages and criminally good storytelling. Don’t miss out on the festivities. If you’d just like to attend the Criminally Good Day from the Essex Book Festival, and not join any walks, this is free, open to all and doesn’t need to be booked, join us there! Flags decorate the grounds of High House Production Park

ACCESSIBILITY

This walk is accessible for wheelchairs or large pushchairs. 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; the walk leaders are experienced but must take your word 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.

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 High House Production Park. 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 we enter indoor spaces on the route, although this is optional.
