Walk Report

Roach and Crouch Estuarine Exploration, Sunday 1st November 2015
21 walkers, 18 miles - leader Steve Plested
21 brave souls turned out despite the transport changes and rather gloomy weather forecast and indeed it remained misty all day, hence very few sea birds and no seals were spotted and views were restricted, quite atmospheric for a while.
A happy bunch joined Steve for this walk, with about half being from Essex and Herts group, and perhaps set a record for a pub lunch stop of a mere 35 mins, seemed to be appreciated by all.
