Leaving from the church and the wonderful old Chequers Inn, we start by making our way westwards through wide-open countryside and later pass through an area of lakes, once sand quarries. After a short stretch along the Maldon road, we make our way down towards Mill Beach and begin the delightful ramble along the northern shore of the Blackwater River (this part is the same as on 5361). There is the option to divert to visit Heybridge Basin, which is worth the effort if time allows. Opposite we pass Northey and Osea Islands before, all too soon, reaching Goldhanger Creek. Now we have only to leave the coastal path and make our way back into the charming village of Goldhanger.
