First attempt of the Thames Estuary Path. Run/walk alone from Tilbury to Leigh-On-Sea. Warm day and dry under foot. Three railway crossings and a few fields with cows and possibly the odd bull. Well marked trail most of the way, but still took a couple of wrong turns, and made one short detour to look at a church.
The trail passes forts and castles, nature reserves and great views of the Thames.
