Although it officially starts in Epping and ends in Harwich, the Essex Way actually is signposted both ways, so Essex Walks thought it would be nice to start at the coast and head inland. The route is lovely, taking you through ancient woodland, open farmland, tree-lined river valleys and leafy green lanes, with plenty of picturesque and historic villages along the way. We decided to break the route into sections so that each represented a moderately demanding walk of around 8 - 12 miles, and which could be accessed via environmentally friendly public transport. So each section of the Essex Way presented here starts and stops either within half a mile of a train station, or near a bus stop with a regular service to a major town. We have tried to indicate refreshment places along the route as well.
