Daisy C added Dagrom two, a new walk from Dagenham to RomfordWalk this route
The absolute nadir was 3km of walking on the pavement *right* *beside* the 6-lane A13 (Alfred's Way). This was so grim that my goodwill and best intentions evaporated and I abandoned testing this route to try a quieter way through to the north. If anyone else wants to try it, I had in mind to loop south of the A13 through Thames View, using either Bastable Rd (with small shopping parade) or a close-by green foot route called the Ribble Greenway. In the longer term that would miss a pleasant stretch of river and dockside walking but you would get the docks and airport views instead and right now the T Path is currently closed beyond G Pt anyway - yet more development underway....

This is effectively the only green part of this route, the remainder being all side streets and busy main roads and currently there is no sensible alternative....
Highly accurate and a nice walk on the elevated part of the track through Beam Parklands to begin. A lot of roads but they were quiet and all had footpaths. On the approach to Sandy Lane you can stay on the footpath instead of cutting through the field as the map suggests....
Cuts through the backstreets and parks with good accessibility...
Once you’re out of Romford town centre the route tries to keep you off the main roads for the majority of the way up to the park, walking through well kept residential streets. This has lots of flat open grass, an outdoor gym and two play areas (one either side of the park). It's a good place to let the dog off the lead for a run or let the children play in the play areas)....
