Walk Report

Between the A12 and A127, Wednesday 4th October 2017
9 walkers, 17 miles - leader Ron Williamson
An excellent walk through Essex countryside at its best and then into the ancient woods of what was the Thorndon estate, now a country park.
An unexpected bonus was the free 20% extra courtesy of Network Rail. Thanks to Brian from Essex and his local knowledge for guiding us on an alternative route. Nearly 3 miles extra, still we were warned in the small print to be prepared for diversions.
The oasis was located at Herongate and four walkers located the Spoons near the finish.
