The Essex Way is a way-marked 82-mile long walk, starting in Epping in the southwest, crossing the Dedham Vale and Constable country, finishing at the port of Harwich on the Stour estuary.
It passes through ancient woodlands, open farmland, tree-lined river valleys and leafy green lanes, unveiling historic towns and villages along the way. Follow the poppies……………..

This walking event will take place over the Summer Solstice Weekend of 20th/21st June 2020. Walking will take place in daylight hours only. All walkers will be free to either keep up with the pace (approx. 3 miles/hr) or walk at their own speed – the pace-setters are only there to make sure our Olympic Torch makes it to the next team’s start point on schedule
The Rob George Foundation exists in memory of Rob, who died aged 21 in 2013, after a battle bravely fought against Leukaemia. Please visit: www.therobgeorgefoundation.org for lots of information on the work we do.
