Enjoyable day out, seeing a massive oil/gas container coming down the Thames was striking. However, quite a bit of this walk is along industrial estates, suburban roads and connected local green spaces, so it's not the greatest example of England's green and pleasant land. Saying that, I would still recommend a visit because the whole area feels different to what Saturday walkers usually walk in. n=7
