The third stretch of the Essex Way is 14 miles long and starts from Pleshey and finishes at Terling. This part of the trail is shaped almost entirely by the River Ter, and its river valley.
The Essex Way stretches 82 miles in total from Epping Station to Harwich Old Lighthouse. This section weaves east through the historic village of Great Waltham before turning north-east via Chatham Green, the popular Hyde Hall, and then Liberty Hall. At Little Leighs the path turns south-east along the Ter River into the village that gives the valley its name.
The highlights are the Witches Stone, the Windmill at Flack Green and spending some time around the ford at Terling. Keep an ear out for the ‘plop’ sound of water voles around the riverside. Please see below for some of the other highlights between Pleshey and Terling.
