Thames Path from Erith to Greenwich

This weekend I followed the Londonist web site's advice and walked from Erith to Greenwich along the Thames path, and jolly good it was too.

According to Google Earth (above) it's around 13 miles - just over if you count the walk to and from the train stations (plus a bit of pootling about down jetties and diversions for ice creams).

Then onwards!

The biggest sights (in every sense) were yet to come....
