Walk Report

Bishops Stortford to Epping, Saturday 27th February 2016
20 walkers, 19 miles - leader Dave Williams
Dave proved that it is possible to walk from Bishops Stortford to Epping despite Harlow being in the way!
Surprisingly, the route was essentially due south - confounding conventional thought that, from Central London, Epping was "out East" and Harlow was somewhere "oop North"!
Dave had 19 starters at Bishops Stortford, and Roderick joined them after starting from Bishops Stortford half an hour later. Luckily he caught them before they reached Sawbridgeworth ... and then they were 20 for the rest of the walk, including Wetherspoons in Harlow.
