Sat 16 June 2018 - 8 miles - ATTRACTIVE VILLAGES OF ESSEX - KELVEDON VIA COGGESHALL CIRCULAR - Leader: Kay
Flat walk at moderate pace with extensive views across the landscape of the Blackwater Valley. Medieval Churches, beautiful old buildings including the opportunity to visit during extended lunch break in Coggeshall, a monastic barn and Paycocke's Tudor House and garden, occupied by a wealthy merchant.
A surprise cold shower when a hidden overhead irrigation struck!
