Essex - A Dog Walker's Guide

Essex - A Dog Walker's Guide

by: Len Banister
On a fine day there is nothing quite so enjoyable, as a dog owner, than getting out into the countryside with your pet for a leisurely walk. Once you get off your home patch though, it is hard to know where you can walk safely with your dog and which pubs and cafes will welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 circular walks, varying in length between 2.5 and 6 miles, in the beautiful countryside of Essex. The walks have been designed with maximum off-lead time and minimum exposure to roads. There are walks around nature reserves and landscaped parkland; beside tranquil rivers and along deserted beaches; through ancient woodland and charming villages; and over quiet meadows and wide open heathland.

All the walks include details of how to get to the start; distance and terrain, dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog-friendly refreshment stops, numbered route directions, points of interest along the way and nearest veterinary practice.
