Bradwell St Peter - River Blackwater - Bradwell Waterside
This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.
On this walk you visit St Peter's Chapel, an isolated monastic building dating back to the 7th century, Othona Roman Fort and Christian Retreat, and the mouth of the River Blackwater where it enters the North Sea.
After walking the bank of the river and passing Bradwell Nuclear Power Station, you strike inland at the small sailing community of Bradwell Waterside to cross fields, then use a quiet lane to return to your start point.
Despite the proximity of the power station the views throughout this walk are excellent. This is a remote area and birdlife and wildlife abound. The walk is worth doing twice at least - once in the direction indicated, then in the reverse direction to savour the views in both directions.
