Erith station was just a few minutes walk from Erith Riverside where I finished my last walk along the Thames path. I am following the Thames downstream from the Thames Barrier. Today I have travelled by train to Erith so I don't have to retrace my steps back to the car. I have an ordnance survey map of the area so should be able to sort out how to get home after a few miles walking. This area is totally new to me so I am looking forward to hopefully finding places of interest. Once back on the path I saw Erith Pier.
This is the first time I have seen a pier like this on a river. This type of long pier is common by the seaside but not riversides.
I now had a clear view of the QE2 bridge (Dartford crossing) - the last bridge over the Thames.
