A walk through the Essex countryside from the coast at Southend-on-Sea to Saffron Walden.
The walk starts by the pier at Southend and follows the coast to the lovely Hadleigh Country Park. The 400 acre park includes the ruins of the 13th century Hadleigh Castle, mixed woodland, meadows and marshland.
From the park you then head north to Chelmsford, passing Hockley Woods, Rayleigh and Danbury with a waterside stretch along the River Crouch at Woodham Ferrers. At Chelmsford you'll enjoy a walk along the River Cam before continuing north to Great Dunmow and Newport before finishing at Saffron Walden.
