27th July 2021 11am-2pm
Starts: Thameside Nature Discovery Park
Ends: East Tilbury
This walk started in Thameside Nature Discovery Park, a popular bird watching site with wonderful views of the lake. There was lots of wildlife to enjoy here as we made our way over to East Tilbury.
On arrival in East Tilbury we explored the residential, industrial and social legacy of Thomas Bata’s utopian vision from the 1930s, visiting the old Bata factory, hotel and Heritage Centre.
The walk ended at the Bata Memorial Gardens for artist-led activities to inspire us to share our dreams for the future with artist Sadie Hasler.
You were invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy as part of the day however chips from George’s fish bar could be arranged for you, there was an option on the order form to let us know.
At the end there was an optional return to the starting point (2-3pm).
This walk started alongside Beach of Dreams walk 30 and then these walkers continued on their longer route.
