The introduction to Walking in Essex talks about childhood visits to my Uncle Roy’s Essex farms. In 2015-16, I decided to devote a couple of walks for the Essex & Herts Long Distance Walkers’ Association to his memory.
The first took place in November 2015 and the second in March 2016. They are each about 19 miles long but are presented here as four linear walks of seven to 12 miles, start or finish at one of Roy’s local pubs, with an easy return to start by a reasonable bus service.
