Dagenham East to Dagenham Heathway
I walk west on Shafter Road and Blackborne Road.
On the Heathway I reach Dagenham Heathway tube station.
Dagenham Heathway to Beacontree
After walking along Spurling Road most of the next part of the walk is on Ivyhouse Road which goes past Parsloes Park.
Becontree tube station is close to the south west corner of the park.
Beacontree to Upney
I walk along Rugby Road.
Mayesbrook Park is a green park with several boating lakes.
After passing more houses I arrive at Upney tube station.
Upney to Barking
Ripple Road is a major road which I follow west.
On Essex Road I have to take a footbridge over the rail track. In the centre of Barking is a big shopping area. There is a pedestrianised market area as well.
Just beyond the market is Barking underground station which is my final stop for the day.
