Danbury, Essex Walk (OS via Country Walking magazine)

Off message but earlier this month Gill and I went for this nice little 7 mile walk in Danbury, Essex. Recommended. Need monthly subscription to Ordinance Survey but the number of free walks you can access means it is well worth it

“Ringed by woods and commons, the village of Danbury has spring bluebell carpets and blossoming orchards, historic parkland and gourmet pubs: everything you could need for a classic stroll in the country. By Phoebe Taplin Route Start/parking: Eve’s Corner, Danbury/bus stops and car parks nearby, postcode CM3 4QF, grid ref TL784051 Is it for me? Mostly good tracks, paths and lanes. Way-finding tricky in woods and on commons. Horses in field. Woods muddy in winter. Steepish ups and downs Stiles: 4 Planning Nearest town: Chelmsford Refreshments: Tea on the Green (01245 226616) and Baker’s Arms (01245 227300) at start/end. Other options near route Public toilets: Danbury Country Park Public transport: Bus 31/31B/31X (First) runs from Chelmsford to Eve’s Corner twice/hour (every two hours on Sunday) Maps: OS Explorer 183; Landranger 167”
