In 1587 William Harrison recorded in his book 'The Description of England' that in the Middle Ages corn was transported from the village of Radwinter to Beeleigh Abbey by water via the Rivers Pant and Blackwater. This information was taken from the introduction in Helen Walker's facinating new booklet 'Radwinter to Beeleigh Abbey - A long-distance walk following a medieval route-way through the heart of Essex'. We will be following the first section of Helen's route to Great Bardfield Watermill, then returning above the Pant Valley
