Starting from the edge of Fordham Heath, use a short section of quiet country lane then field- paths south of the River Colne, eventually to reach the pleasant little village of Ford Street. Walk through the village, crossing the Colne in the process and reach a point where you can again use field paths and a section of the Essex Way to walk east (now on the north side of the river). When you reach Cook's Mill (now a private home), walk through its grounds and again cross the Colne. A final section of country lane and then a short walk through woodland brings you back to your start point.
