50 Walks in Essex

50 Walks in Essex

by: Katerina and Eric Roberts
Essex is full of pleasant surprises. It has the largest coastline (more than 300 miles) of any county in England, with a fair share of castles, royal connections and scenic valleys. It has many attractions that can only be truly appreciated on foot. If you climb up the Langdon Hills, explore the Lee Valley, wander along the high ridges of Hainault Forest or trek through ancient woodland such as Hatfield Forest you will discover that Essex is a diverse and interesting county and has some very pretty villages.

This guide explores some of the best of the Essex countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. The majority of the routes are circular and are mainly rural and coastal walks with welcoming pubs and cafes. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
