Walking Close to Chelmsford

Walking Close to Chelmsford

by Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical. There are ten varied and interesting circular walks in this booklet from between 4 and 9 miles in length.

Chelmsford has Roman origins, having developed around a fort on the Roman road between London and Colchester. It became the county town of Essex in 1218, and finally a city in 1914. This guide focuses in the Essex countryside close to Chelmsford and the River Chelmer. The source of the River Chelmer is near Debden Green in Essex, it flows past Thaxted and Great Dunmow to Chelmsford where it is joined by the River Can. The River Wid has joined the Can at Writtle just west of the city.
