As if Mega Week wasn’t enough, Alistair and I decided to tackle another section of The Essex Way  (with 81 miles and 450+ plus caches, we’re definitely doing it in small sections!).

Back on 2nd Jan (before my daily streak began) we had completed the section 160-177 around Great Waltham. So the obvious place to start this time was 178 and work our way to 208 – Chatham Green, south of Great Leighs and onto Fuller Street and Gamble’s Green.

Most of the caches were straightforward but it was nice to have the occasional puzzle or letterbox to add some variety. I sent Alistair into the bushes to find one:

He loves to climb any Pointless Stiles we find on the way. It was a long walk so we enjoyed a pint in the pub at Fuller Street before completing the section and heading back to the car at Chatham Green. A very pleasant walk.
