This walk starts from the small town famous for its fruit farms and jam making. You follow some excellent tracks and there are some surprisingly extensive views, with little climbing and descending to achieve this. Also on the route you follow a good length of an incredible brick wall, built in the 1800s to surround Braxtead Park. Its construction took several years, as plaques along the way testify. Back near the start of your walk there is a pleasant pub and parking at the start is convenient and free.

Nearly every path on this walk is badly over grown. Be prepared for thistles and stingers. Couple of updates,which are at waymark 2 the Braxted sign is broken laying on the floor. At waymark 8,there is now a clear visible path to the wooden fence at the 1st property.Follow the wooden fence and just as you pass the 2nd garden there is a path heading off left through long grass leading to the road.At waymark 12 the marker post on the left is no longer there,the path is easily missed as the metal poles are buried in undergrowth.At waymark 14 the sign to Tolleshunt and Tiptree is missing.At waymark 15 as you cross the 1st footbridge,there is no footpath across the field.So turn right,then left and follow the field edge around until you come to the 2nd footbridge on the right.

Another great walk by Brian and Anne. We have done a number of their walks and always found the directions clear and precise. The walks have been interesting and this was no exception. The only slight problem was mud in some places. But this is not surprising as this was August in the very wet summer of 2012. Excellent walk! Mick Woodward

Absolutely fabulous walk. Although some of it is on the roads, it has to be said that they are very quiet country roads (almost lanes) providing good views of the pretty landscape. At the end of the walk, we drove back to the Du Vane pub in Great Braxted to have a drink. Lovely. Give it a go.

Prefer off road rambling, excellent walk, clear directions, glad we wore our boots. First half of the walk was great. Near the beginning of point 5 is a really nice lake full of ducks, can be easily missed as can the lake in point 6. At point 8 we stopped at the Dune Cane Arms Inn, a very pleasant pub, that caters for walkers, we then went back to Braxted lane to begin the Second half of the walk, which was on and off road in equal measure. Still an excellent walk.
