Walking in Essex describes 25 day walks across the whole of the historic county of Essex. The Essex Way is also covered in 11 stages from Manor Park, to the port of Harwich. Essex may not be the first place you think of for walking, it's varied landscape includes ancient forests and miles of coastline all within easy reach of London.
Native east Londoner Peter Aylmer discovered walking as a pastime as a young man. Since then he has climbed many hills and walked many long-distance paths all over Britain, but he still relishes the surprise on people's faces when he tells them some of his favourite walking is within his home county of Essex.
