Leaving the fort
[Updated 14/04/2015] p.112 Where walkers are directed to follow the wall around Tilbury power station on footpath 146, they should be warned that this path can be hard going because of all the rubbish washed up by the river. Also, at least 100 yards of it are underwater at high tide, and if you are there as the tide is going out, it can be very slippery.
[Updated 11/04/2016] Two of the pubs on this route now appear to be permanently closed. They are the Charlotte Despard and the Lillie Langtry.
