‘The route is a splendid testament to those pioneers at the CPRE who, fifty years ago, put their ambitious ideas into action’

Back in the autumn of 2013, CPRE Essex published in its magazine, Action Essex, Peter Ward’s account of how he tackled the 81 miles of the Essex Way.
We reproduce the first part of that tale here. Please forgive its presentation as a series of scans (we hope to improve on them in due course), but they should be perfectly legible if you increase their size on your screen. Hopefully, the article will be an inspiration to take on at least some of the walk yourselves.
