Thames estuary walks

In a series of several walks I have been exploring the Thames estuary on the north side walking from Tilbury fort to Tilbury Power station and from Coal House fort back the other way to Tilbury and then on the south side from Gravesend towards Cliffe. A bleak melancholic landscape of post industrial strangeness, all big skies, mud flats and marshland.

Near Tilbury is the site of a Victorian dump and the ground is still full of rubbish, pottery fragments, old bottles and parts of shoes. I brought a bit home of course.



  1. Thank you for sharing this Ali. Great photos Very interesting. They remind me a little of Norfolk salt marshes. Also, I like the fragment of royal commemorative china. Who is that royal?
