Group of people walking along partially wooded trail

The walk has various route options dependant on the weather, but mainly travels though the Great Baddow Recreation Ground and Noakes Park, using surface paths and some nearby pavements.  

There is some uneven ground on this 35 to 45 minute route, and it can become muddy, making it unsuitable for buggies or wheelchairs. 

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.
