Project Overview


The Land of the Fanns Landscape Partnership Scheme is a 5 year programme seeking to restore, discover and celebrate one of the last remaining landscapes of London as it once was.

The 2m high seawall between West Thurrock and Purfleet is adorned with graffiti for almost its entire length - about 1½ miles. Love it or hate it, Lesley Robinson explains why this is one her favourite walking routes in the area.

In a quiet corner of Grays sits the peaceful Herbert E Brooks Memorial Garden. Its story reveals the history of the immense cement industry in Thurrock.

Tucked away between the edges of the M25, Eurostar links & warehouses is the calm oasis of @RainhamHallNT. National Trust Community Gardener Jesse Lock is passionate about creating a space that local people feel connected to.
