This is an ideal walk for families and dog-walkers.  It includes dramatic views of the Stour estuary and opportunties to see wildlife.  Perhaps the highlights are the opportunities to view Grayson Perry's "A House for Essex" or "Julie's House" commissioned as part of the Living Architecture programme.  It is a lavishly decorated folly cum artwork, clad with green and white dimensional tiles which depict the life of Julie Cope, the fictitious saint to whom the house is dedicated. 

Walk length is approximately 2 miles. . It can be muddy in places if it has been raining.
