Thames Path : Greenhithe to Northfleet

Looking back to Dartford river crossing and QE2 bridge

 

Riverside sculpture, Frobisher Way

 

One of the partly inaccessible riverside paths at Frobisher Way, Greenhithe

 

(Looking back to) gateway into the riverside path off Pier Road

 

Finally, a riverside path to walk along

 

Abandoned (?) barge

 

A short hop over the fence near Clovely Place and we regain the path, or what is left of it

 

Rounding a small bay before we approach the fenced off land near the pier. Saint Clement anchorage.

 

Fenced off land near White’s Jetty and the ever present pylon

 

Impressive pylon – needs extra height so the wire clear tall ships

 

At the base of the pylon

 

Pylon shadow and the path (?) continues

 

Abandoned and inhabited boats, Broadness Creek

 

Raised walkway to boat and cabin

 

Looking out of Broadness Creek across to the docks

 

Path near the radar tower is flooded

 

Broadness Navigation light

 

Overgrown path nearing the end of the walk, muddy too – Broadness Barge road

 

The End.

 

Ahead the map shows that I run out of two things vital to continuation: road/rail access to within a walkable distance of the coast; and a suitable path along which to walk. So I have come as far eastwards as I can reach by foot. Ahead is an industrial complex. Tilbury docks across the water.
