Elizabeth Line — Abbey Wood to Whitechapel

Lesnes Abbey Woods parkland (Abbey Wood to Woolwich)

The south-eastern sector of the Elizabeth Line runs from Abbey Wood to the junction with the north-eastern and central sectors at Whitechapel. There is a good variety of walking in this sector, from the wildness of woodland to the sometimes austere modernity of Docklands.

Links to maps and directions will be added as details are confirmed. Note that some inter-station stages have been combined in the directions: the link against each stage is to the document which contains the directions for that stage (and possibly for others).
