Event description


Walk 12: Thurrock 100 Recipes 2018

East Tilbury Walk with Fish and Chips!

Friday 20th July 2018 6-8pm

We’ll be welcomed with delicious tea and home-made cake at St Catherine’s Church and hear about the history of the Church, parts of which date back to the 12th Century AD.

Following the river footpath, with estuary views, we then head to the Bata Estate and East Tilbury for a chat with Hassan, who runs the renowned George’s Fish Bar. People flock here from all over Thurrock and beyond for the best fish and chips on a Friday night, and walkers can purchase a portion themselves to fill up after the walk.
