Event Details

A walk of two halves ending in a picnic all together at Rainham Marshes.

For this longer walk join us at Rainham Hall, details below, where we will hear about their kitchen gardens, herb spiral and orchard with some very unusual varieties like a 150 year old Mulberry tree and how jam is made from the fruit. On the way to Rainham Marshes we will hear about the local history of the area.

If you are starting the walk at Purfleet, please see Walk 7 for details and to book, we will consider the food grown on local farms or sold in village shops. Find out about "the famous white bait suppers" and the award-winning village school famous for its amazing apples.

After the picnic either enjoy spending some more time exploring the marshes or visit the local Purfleet Heritage Centre.
Please bring a sharing picnic.

Thurrock 100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven.  If this walk doesn't suit you, there is probably another one that will.

Please note:
You need to choose walks within your capabilities; the walk leaders are experienced but must take your word that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen.
Walk leaders will be at the start of the walk regardless of the weather. In the unlikely event of any unforeseen circumstances, Kinetika reserve the right to change or cancel a walk and/or performance. Please check the website regularly for any updates or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes.  Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Kinetika People is a charity, specialising in community engagement and #placemaking through outdoor arts which has delivered Thurrock 100 since 2015.

In 2016, with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England, Kinetika collected stories and conversations about Thurrock and its history in the Thurrock 100 Stories book. In 2017 Thurrock 100 performed some of those stories on location using The Complete Commedia Company’s irreverent comic style.

Ths year Kinetika are setting off on another series of walks around Thurrock, Southend, Gravesend and Dartford: T100 Recipes and invite you to join them. Building on three years of successful walking projects, T100 Recipes takes for its theme the diverse, historic and colourful foods that communities have brought to the Lower Thames Estuary when they have settled here.

Following routes that take in the area’s diverse and historic food cultures, the specially curated set of walks are led by volunteers well-versed in the geography and history of the routes. They will offer opportunities to discover and share foods from the rich diversity of peoples from around the world as well as local delicacies.

One of the last walks coincides with Chilean arts organisation Teatro Container, cooking a community feast in La Cocina Publica, the Public Kitchen: a mobile kitchen built inside a shipping container. All T100 Recipe walkers are invited to join the feast on Saturday 21st July at Tilbury Port Cruise Terminal.

With the help and support of local people, Thurrock 100 has so far mapped and explored 31 local walks, made 110 silk flags, run a dance programme, published a book of 100 local stories and engaged thousands of people. Join Kinetika in 2018 to add your special ingredient to the T100 Recipes.

Thurrock 100 is a Kinetika project.
