Walk Wild Essex - South Woodham Ferrers

Photo collage from a fantastic walk last Sunday in South Woodham Ferrers near Cheltenham. A 6 mile circular walk. Only 51 minutes by car from Newham but also the walk starts at the town railway station.

The walk is listed in guide book "Walk Wild Essex" by Tony Gunton. This is the 2nd walk we have done from this book and been impressed with both. There is another 48 to explore. 

It may not be particularly "wild" but there was lots of fresh air (and a little rain) and my favorite big Essex skies. There was a few people about but most of the time there was a lovely sense of remoteness and isolation. 

We finished off with a drink at the "The Railway" next to the station. I was astonished that on the sign for the pub, the train illustrated on it was apparently called the "North Wales Coastal Express"? Anyone know why in wild Essex a train from my homeland is featured?
