Northfleet to Greenwich (pt1)

Day 317 Northfleet to Erith. I have split this into 2 walks, today and tomorrow as today I had to move Travelodges and store the car somewhere. Today was dry, chilly and windy. It was fascinating walking under the QE2 bridge. I remember when they were building this. As there was already a Dartford Tunnel, we in Essex thought it was going to be called the Thurrock Bridge but we ultimately lost the batte. It is a huge bridge and one I am very glad NOT to be going over. At the time of opening, it had the longest cable-stayed span of any bridge in Europe.
Inland trip to get round the River Darent and at Erith, I finally got signs for the Thames path. I will be following this right to the finish
Tomorrow, I will walk Erith to Greenwich and prepare myself for the final leg.
