Part fifteen of the loop was a little industrial, and a fair stretch of it was on roads. Highlights were Hornchurch Country Park, the odd field around the River Ingrebourne, abandoned World War 2 concrete barges, and Purfleet RSPB visitor centre. Lowlights were heavy industry and the smelly landfill site on the river (quite interesting though)
