The Essex Way: Part 4 – West Bergholt to Mistley

After the big skies and open views of the previous sections, this one was a bit unexciting in comparison. Also, I did this section as a daywalk rather than planning to sleep out – which was just as well as there didn’t seem like much of a choice of spots to secrete a tent either. I took relatively few photos, but here they are anyway.

Today’s redundant stile

I stopped at Dedham for lunch and watched a groundsman white lining the football pitch. A pretty sedate form of entertainment.

After hours of less-than stimulating fields, I arrived at the riverside in Manningtree and things started looking up. Shame it was so close to the end of the walk.

Arrived at Mistley to find the train to Manningtree arriving, but unable to cross the tracks to get on it. So found myself with an hour’s wait for the next one. But all in all, glad to get this section done.
