Essex Outstanding Circular Walks

by: Dennis and Jan Kelsall
175 miles of excellent walking in the fine and varied countryside of Essex: ramble over gently rolling farmland in the Chelmer valley around Thaxted, stride out through the splendid ancient woodland in Epping Forest, experience the broad horizons and vast expanses f coastal marshland at Burnham and Bradwell, and visit the historic towns of Colchester and Maldon, and attractive villages, including Finchingfield.

This Pathfinder Guide makes the ideal companion for country walks throughout Essex. Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale maps and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the routes features. The following route finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. There are GPS references for all the route waypoints and the route is highlighted in yellow on the map.
