Strider December 2009

While the Essex coast currently has no complete promoted walking route, most of the coast is walkable. Peter Caton, a long-time Essex resident, has provided The Essex Coast Walk, a new book illustrated with maps and photographs, surveying this varied coastline from its remote and little visited stretches with its wide range of wildlife, to the Industries and docks of the Thames estuary. Tracing the history of the coastline, he then looks ahead to the likely Impacts of climate change. The book describes a series of 28 walks over the full length of the Essex coast, from Manningtree to Purfleet. While not a walking guide, it is a narrative describing the walk, wildlife, history, people and places along the way so it would make a good companion to someone walking the county’s coast, or simply an interesting read.
