Green Corridor

Essex, Gtr London, Suffolk

183 km / 114 miles
A linear route from Ipswich to Bow, London following a 'green corridor' roughly following the route of the A12 road and including many rural sections. The route may be split into shorter sections by using train stations at Manningtree, Colchester, Kelvedon, Hatfield Peverel, Chelmsford, Ingatestone, Brentwood, Harold Wood and Barkingside.

The Green Corridor walk was originated by Derek and Jessie Keeble and started from Great Yarmouth. It followed the existing Angles Way and made use of walks along the East Suffolk line railway to reach Ipswich by way of Lowestoft. In 2017 the A12 between Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth was redesignated as the A47.
