Had a lovely winter walk here. Beautiful views and lovely sunset. Very atmospheric. Easy wide paths to follow and very flat. Not been here before even though i grew up in the area. A bit of a hidden gem for nature lovers.

Good varied bird life plenty of pews with a view. No Loo's, not much in the way of pubs but hey this a walk on the wild side.

I am a frequent visitor to Cliffe Pools and the North Kent Marshes and absolutely love the place. There is plentiful car parking and the site is really wheel chair friendly, with shallow gradients and well maintained pathways.
