Newport and Debden Essex "Big Skies" walk
Off message. This is our favourite Essex Pathfinder walk. Only 40 minutes drive from Forest Gate (and accessible by rail). A 6.5 mile circular walk starting from Newport Railway Station. It is quite hilly for Essex and lots of lovely green lanes and footpaths as well as loads of attractive thatched cottages.
On this clear day last Sunday, with lots of sunshine, the Essex "big skies" back drop to this walk is spectacular. You hardly see another soul on this walk. Last post on this walk in snow and ice 2010.
