On this walk you will find an incredible variety of scenery. There are wild and desolate mudflats, conventional and huge prairie-type fields and seafronts varying between the Victorian and Edwardian grandeur of Clacton, the ramshackle settlement of Jaywick (holiday home of Eastenders for decades) and the huge modern caravan parks at St Osyth Beach. There is even a stretch of nudist beach, just before you reach a nature reserve. The walk starts and ends at Clacton Pier, which is close to the town centre.

Re-walked to check for updates.The only one is at Waymark 3.As Brian and Anne suggested,keep to the side of the water-filled ditch,which is now overgrown with reeds,because there are no clear paths heading across the huge field towards the farm.When you arrive at the broad track near the farm,the paths are signposted.

A very nice walk, especially the 1st half along the coast. I started at Clacton Railway Station,and it's 6.3 miles to the sewage works at the end of waymark 1. Just a few updates,the concrete steps just past the sewage works have gone,just the handrail remains. At waymark 3 when you meet another track and turn right, the field was flooded. I did a detour by turning left instead, then right onto Lee Wick farm track. Follow this to a road,turn right, then 100m up on the right, is the farm track leading to Wigboro Wick Farm. Walk down here for 200m and then the path across the field is on the left before the bend. With the detour and walking back to the station,the distance was 13.2 miles

Hi Chris Just completed this walk and everything is as decribed in the text no changes to report. Well, if like me you love long walks and wide open spaces this walk is for you, From the hustle & bustle of clacton to the quite remote open space of Lee-over-Sands, (there are little egrits here a beautiful bird to watch) and then the walk back in wide open farmland, this is a gem of a walk, just what I have come to expect from Brain and Anne Sandland, nice one. Best wishes Peter.
