Essex Walks - A free site listing rural walks in Essex countryside
From the rolling hills to the coastline, through unspoilt villages and ancient woodlands, all of rural Essex is best appreciated on foot.
This website provides all the information needed for individuals or couples to enjoy quiet walks in the beautiful Essex countryside.
All these walks are on public footpaths, permissive paths or other land open to the public, so you never have to worry about trespassing.
In the remote villages and countryside of Essex, parking is often difficult but it should be okay if you've got just one car.
