Step 1: Welcome to the Stanford-Le-Hope to Pitsea section of the Thames Estuary Path, which begins at Stanford-le-Hope train station.
Step 2: The Thames Estuary Path is a 30 mile route from Tilbury to Southend, taking you past Thameside Forts, ancient Churches, through Thames Marshes and along the sea wall overlooking internationally important marshes and mudflats.
Step 3: All Thames Estuary Path walks are shadowed by the C2C railway line, making it extremely accessible by train. Trains run between Shoeburyness and London Fenchurch Street, via Southend, Basildon and more local stations.
Step 4: When you’re ready, let’s head off. Exit out onto London Road and turn right.
Step 5: At the footpath marker, pass by the metal barriers and head down the paved path to the right.
Step 6: Continue straight ahead on Chantry Crescent and keep following the pavement as the road bends up the hill and to the left.
