Walk Report

Sudbury to Marks Tey, Saturday 31st August 2008
11 walkers, 18 miles - leader Peter Russell
Eleven of us walked along the Stour Valley on a sultry day. First stop was Great Henny church where 'Love birds wrecked spire' thence to a good lunch at La Marsh and onto to Wormingford Church. Here everyone except Dave voted against a diversion to a secret bunker near its disused airport via overgrown paths and a toxic waste dump (both very Essex, and what might explain why no one from local groups attended the walk). We dropped south to Marks Tey and picked some perfect blackberries before getting the 5.32/6 trains to Colchester or London with seconds to spare and everyone said they had enjoyed the walk.
