Starting from Walton Station, you walk north along the seafront until you reach the Naze. Continuing to follow the coast, you gradually bear west until you return to the outskirts of Walton, then rejoin your outward route along a short stretch of the seafront, to return to the station.

Walton is a small old-fashioned seaside resort just to the north of Clacton and Frinton. The Naze is an area of open land fronting the North Sea with excellent views towards Harwich, Felixstowe and the southern end of Suffolk. There is much wildlife and a great variety of birdlife. The views are excellent and you should be able to see shipping entering the mouths of the rivers Orwell and Stour on their way to or from the ports of Harwich, Felixstowe, Ipswich and Mistley.

The cliffs on the seaward edge of the Naze are a favourite haunt of geologists and fossil hunters. In autumn, huge quantities of blackberries can be picked from the large patches of brambles on your way. You should also be able to find some samphire, a delicious form of edible seaweed.
