Danbury and Lingwood Commons - Little Baddow - River Chelmer - Scrub Wood - Pheasanthouse Wood - Danbury
After leaving the convenient little car park, you immediately enter Lingwood and Danbury Commons (NT), which you cross in a north-westerly direction. Like most of the route, this section is a delight. After more tracks and short sections of lane, you arrive at Little Baddow and pass the hall and church. A field-path then leads you down to the River Chelmer. A delightful stroll beside the river, passing picturesque Paper Mill Lock, is followed by more field-paths. You then pass beside Scrub Wood and reach Pheasanthouse Wood. The track through here is again a great pleasure (on the day we prepared the walk a superb fox crossed the track in quite leisurely fashion a few yards in front of us) and all too soon you find yourself back at your start point.
