Thames Path : Erith to Slade Green
A bit of an annoying walk this time. Annoying for two reasons – firstly much of the start of the walk is actually away from the river – various scrap and recycling businesses occupy the riverside and the path at the edge of the waterline is closed, requiring a diversion. The second annoyance is due to the long detour required at the river Darent – despite there being a nice flood barrier constructed where the Darent branches off from the Thames, there is no publica crossing. The only way to cross the 5 metre wide channel is via a detour several miles inland. So that is why this walk ends at Slade Green, a place several miles inland from the Thames!
