On this page
Distance: 13 miles
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; at the start and near the mid-point. If you only wish to walk your one-mile stretch and join the walking party as it comes through your section, you can specify to meet ‘at my mile’ on the booking form (which should have been emailed to you already).
If you are meeting ‘at my mile’, please understand it is difficult for us to specify the exact time the main walking party will arrive. To help you estimate this, use the scheduled times below and add 30 mins per mile to get to your mile. We are using a walking speed of 2 miles an hour as a guide.
If you don’t receive any emails about the walks, please check your spam folder or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please arrive 20 minutes beforehand.
