Rosherville diversion

My radial route to Gravesend needs a temporary (I hope) diversion: a large area of Rosherville has been cordoned off, and there is no access between Crete Hall Road and the roundabout at Thames Way and West Street. The alternative route (which requires a 30m climb to London Road and a similar descent to Thames Way) is given in the text of Section 8: Southfleet to Gravesend.

This means that there is no longer a route on the bank of the Thames, and no view of the Tilbury Container Terminal across the river, nor of the sad remnants of Art Deco buildings.

The housing will wipe out the site of the Rosherville Pleasure Gardens (1837-1901) as well as the Crete Hall estate.
