A circuit of the most gastronomic island in Essex – we pass saltmarsh grazing, oyster beds, brewery and a vineyard!
Access from Brightlingsea Ferry or Cudmore Grove on the island.
To all walkers:
There are two official meeting locations per day, one is at the start and the other is near the walk mid-point.
Mile numbers that the sections correspond to are next to the times below. Please arrive 20 minutes beforehand to avoid delaying the walk departure.
If you only wish to walk your one-mile stretch and walk along with the walking party as it comes through your section, please confirm this with the Project Coordinator who will be sending all walkers some detailed emails in the next few weeks. If you don’t receive any emails about the walks, please email email@example.com

As soon as a mile is booked it is removed as a choice and no-one else can book it. So if the number you want isn’t there, it has already been taken. There are plenty to choose from, so look for another nearby. After completing the form you will receive a welcome email confirming your selection.
