The Green at Writtle


Leaving Writtle Green area via Lodge Road


Turning left into Paradise Road following the footpath signs for Hylands Park

Just inside the gates is a car park, coffee shop and toilets; the path goes to the right alongside the children's play area

The path follows the tree line, curving to the left as it approaches the main park exit/entrance

The gate that I expected to leave the park by was locked, so I walked a little further to the main entrance

You continue up Private Road and cross Goat Hall Lane into Bekeswell Lane


The path swings to the left by the Horse & Groom pub. I should have carried on a bit further before turning left, but instead I took a route past the pub, along the Race Course and past the church. This is a pleasant route and arrives at the same point on the main road by the Eagle pub at Galleywood Common.
