This walk starts in the small wooded hamlet of Mill Green from opposite The Cricketers Pub. Passing alongside ancient woodlands and through arable farmland, the route crosses under the A12 London Road and close to the village of Margaretting. Sometimes deer and buzzards can be spotted en route, together with skylarks and kestrels. After walking through wildflower meadows and passing through a tunnel under the main London Railway line the route follows the line to reach St Margaret's Church at Margaretting. The church is worthy of a visit to see the wooden steeple and the Commonwealth War Graves. There is a sunny seat to the rear of the church for picnic and coffee stops. Some times there are wild honey bees in the woodwork of the church and in spring the churchyard is festooned with primroses. In the pastures near the church, adjacent to the River Wid (but fenced-in) are over 2,000 head of beef cattle, a spectacle in the early summer when they are with calf. After crossing the railway line the walk returns on a loop through meadows, arable fields and a small woodland back to Mill Green.
