Day #345 – Pleshey Potter

Trad: 4 Multi: 1
Walked: 2.5 miles

Time to pick up a few more orphans today – this time around the picturesque village of Pleshey. First of all, I tackled a handful on the Pleshey Diversion Off The Essex Way.

This poor bird came off the worst from an encounter with something hungry – probably a fox!

One annoying DNF later, I was back in the village itself for the new Village Sign hide by jazzyjessups. He’s a brave Kentish boy if he comes encroaching this far into Essex territory! 😀

Day #327 – A Pleshey Diversion

Trad: 5 Letterbox: 1
Walked: 4.7 miles

Having finished work at a reasonable time this evening, I visited Pleshey to walk a section of the newly-revamped Off The Essex Way loop by fenners1984. There were some pretty cottages along the way:

The going was pretty good for most of the route, with well made footpaths and tracks.

I saw some lovely wild roses growing in the hedgerows.

The penultimate hide was this nice letterbox cache, with a big, fat Zebra stamp in it!

All in all an enjoyable little diversion for my stroll.
