Thames Estuary Trail

Essex, Kent, Medway, Thurrock

The Thames Estuary Trail is not an official route but part of the title of a book - "Thames Estuary Trail - A Walk Around the Edge of the World" - written by Tom King, describing his experiences of walking around the estuary from Foulness to the Isle of Sheppey, via Tilbury. Newspaperman Tom King, in the company of 'Essex Dog,' takes a whimsical stroll along the north and south shores of the River Thames, humourously noting people and places.
