Leaving St Andrew's Church, Willingale, at 9-30 a.m. on Stage 2

The path is immediately opposite the church



The path swings to the left just before Rowe's Farm





I had quite a shock when I came to Wares Farm, as I realised that I had inexplicably taken the wrong path at Fambridge End. A short detour westwards along Wares Road soon had me back on The Essex Way!


Very nice thatched cottage on Wares Road

St Andrew's Church, Good Easter

Primrose Cottage..... how cute!

The path goes off to the left immediately opposite Primrose Cottage




Holy Trinity Church, Pleshey

Thatched Cottage, Pleshey


The Leather Bottle pub


Leaving Pleshey you have to be eagle-eyed to spot the path which goes off along the wire fence

Back into typical Essex countryside on route to Great Waltham

The Beehive pub, Great Waltham

St Mary and Lawrence Church, Great Waltham


So, another good day's walking in the Essex countryside. With another 93 km to go to Harwich I shall definitely have to improve my navigation! I was soon on the No. 42 bus back into Chelmsford at 14:35 hrs.
