Chelmer Village walk
This gentle, 1.4 mile, 30 to 40 minute walk starts at Chelmer Village and follows the paved paths through Brook End Gardens or The Green.
Chelmer Village offers a number of route options with the regular walk following paved or tarmacked residential paths, via Brook End Gardens or The Green.
There are no steps, but options to walk across grass when the route is dry so there is some uneven ground, making it buggy friendly but unsuitable for wheelchairs. Toilets are available at Asda.
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.
