Sunday Walk: Wakes Colne to Bures

Book 1, walk 46
11 miles, 17.7 km

Ah Essex! Lovely Essex. Thatched cottages, brooks, farms, woods, and undulating hills. Nice lunch pub.
Get the 10:08 Ipswich train from Liverpool Street, changing onto the Sudbury line at Marks Tey  (arr 1106 dep 11:16) arriving Chappell & Wakes Colne 11:22
Return trains at xx:49 changing again at Marks Tey. Bures is a request station. You need to hail the train to stop it.
Get a return to Bures.
Chappell & Wakes Colne station has a Railway Museum, admission £7. Anyone so inclined could get the train an hour earlier (9:08), have a look round and meet the others at the appointed time. Just a thought.
