Green Chain Geotrail

This walk has been produced by members of the LGP in association with the Green Chain Walk initiative. Scroll to the end of the page for the pdf. The Green Chain Geotrail connects some of London's most important geological sites, allowing you to learn about the tropical seas and kilometre high glaciers that have covered London in the past. Our capital has suffered all this and more. The Geotrail is a 7 mile walk from the Thames Barrier to Lesnes Abbey Woods.

A trail through time

In April 2016 a new initiative has been added: A trail through time which has extended the range of the original Green Chain Geotrail to include points of interest all over the Green Chain network. Inevitably they do not link up in the same way as the geotrail but the 12 selected geologically interesting points can all be accessed via the South Eastern railway network. Each one is accompanied by an audio description of the site and associated interest as well as the route from the station.

A brief synopsis of each of the 12 sites and the accompanying audio can be down loaded from A trail through time.
