General Notes
2 castles, 8 miles & 809 years of history! The Magna Carta Walk is 17 mile long between Castle Hedingham & Clare and back to Castle Hedingham. It retraces the route that would have been taken by messengers of two of the principal rebels in the lead up to the revolt. Lunch stop in Clare; picnic lunch in Clare Country Park recommended, but Clare also has a small cafe, a Co-op & pubs. Like the medieval messengers, we'll do the Walk both ways in a day. Flat walk, 2 stiles, mix of good cinder track & footpaths. Dogs welcome
