Update:

In line with lockdown our group activities including Heart and Sole walks will not be running until further notice. 

Various routes can be taken to explore the pretty village of Writtle on this low intensity walk, including a walk alongside fields, via the village duckpond, and through the College grounds.   

This walk meets outside the Lordship Tearooms and Shop and is wheelchair and buggy friendly. Why not stay on afterwards and enjoy some cake? 

Please note that, for each walk, a specific route has been agreed and risk assessed to provide the safest walking environment possible. This cannot be changed.
