Sunday Second Walk - Gentle Essex walk

Extra Walk 55 – Harlow Circular

Length: 13km (8.1 miles) Toughness: 1/10

10:55 Stansted Airport train from Liverpool Street (Tottenham Hale  11:07) arriving at Harlow Town at 11:24.

Return trains are at xx:02, xx:10 and xx:30 (journey time about 35 mins).

This short, easy walk on the Hertfordshire/Essex border is often done as a winter walk when the densely planted crops that can obstruct some paths in the summer are no longer a problem. Be prepared for a certain amount of mud, though in some places you can divert round the edge of particularly muddy fields as indicated in the walk directions.

The late start and short journey time makes this an ideal walk for those who like to have a bit of a lie-in on a Sunday morning. The recommended lunchtime pub is The Crown in Hunsdon (07415-370860).. Please note that The Crown’s phone number shown in the walk directions and on the website is now incorrect.  The nearby Fox and Hounds (01279 843999) is a more upmarket alternative.
