Two Forts Way Walk

The Two Forts Way is a  walk between Coalhouse Fort at East Tilbury and Tilbury Fort which is 3.7 miles away.

Coalhouse and Tilbury Forts were part of the complex fortification on the Thames to protect the approaches to London.

The walk largely follows the riverbank giving views of the traffic on the river as well as the marsh, meadow and industry inland.

Thanks to EU funding the walk is marked with signs and explanations of the significance at various points on the route.
