Walking Close to Colchester

Walking Close to Colchester

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

Colchester's proud boast is that it is the oldest town in England. In 77AD the Roman historian Pliny the Elder mentioned Camulodunum (Roman Colchester) as a town in Britain, the first reference to a settlement in the British Isles. This guide focuses on the area around the River Colne near Colchester with ten walks, varying in length from 4 miles to 9 miles.

The walk locations are:
Birch Green and Layer Breton Heath - 8.75 miles
Tollesbury - 6 miles
