Event Details Updated
Note that there are engineering works on the line to Benfleet on Sunday so there is a bus replacement service for the last 20 minutes of the journey. The best train is the 08.10 from Fenchurch St, arr Benfleet 09.20 with a change at Basildon. There are return services every 30 mins. In view of the slightly slower journey, the walk start will be at 09.20 on Sunday, rather than 09.00. Steven will be at the station from 09.00, however, for anyone arriving by car at the original time.

Walk Report

Steven's Two Loops, Sunday 7th June 2015
9 walkers, 20 miles - leader Steven Muster
Nine people attended the walk. Three came via the rail replacement bus. As it was a small group we did the walk a faster pace than usual, starting at 9:30 am and finishing by 3:40 pm! Two Loops walk, from Benfleet to Hadleigh Castle and then walking round Canvey Island. A brilliant, sunny day!
