Essex Way At Epping

Trad: 16
Walked: 8 miles

Another section of The Essex Way has been revived, starting at the beginning in Epping and following the path to Coopersale. It’s a section I never got around to walking the first time around, so I decided to visit today and polish a few off the list. It was easy enough to follow the route, since it is pretty well signposted – even though this one was hiding behind the dreaded vil.

There were plenty of wide open vistas and an easy to follow path for the most part – and it was dry enough for me to avoid most of the mud!

There is still a bit of a gap between Coopersale and Tool Hill, but let’s hope it gets bridged in the future.

I met up with muggle friends today for a picnic in Epping Forest. Of course, I took the opportunity to find a few boxes in Epping town on the way, and in the Forest after they had set off for home.

We also enjoyed lovely home made cakes and tea in the Church at High Beach. It’s a pretty spot – pity there is no Church Micro there, and it would be a great location as there aren’t any caches near enough to clash with it.

I’m glad I found some nice caches while out, as it’s my 7th Geocaching Birthday today! Seems like only yesterday I started out in this crazy tupperware-hunting game!
