Little Burstead Loop Walk - Essex Big Skies


Today Gill and I went on our 1st long walk of the New Year and the weather Gods smiled on us. It was about 40 minutes drive from Newham to the car park next to the Dukes Head Pub, Laindon Common, Little Burstead, Basildon. 

The 5.24 mile walk is available to download on the Ordnance Survey website (subscription needed but well worth it). There is a free to download 3.5 mile walk here

It was a little cold and windy but the views were spectacular. We hardly saw a soul but there was some road noise at times. We stopped for a coffee break at Little Burstead Church on a bench. Parishioners were leaving after Sunday Service and they stopped and chatted to us and even gave us some delicious homemade Chocolate cake that had been donated by someone moving away. I offered to make a donation but it was refused. The kindness of strangers. 

Afterwards we had a drink at the Dukes Head pub and checked out their Sunday Roast menu. Next time...

Will post more pictures on Facebook
