Group name: Maldon & Dengie Hundred
This group is a part of Essex Area.
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
Maldon is an ancient but still active port situated where the Rivers Blackwater and Chelmer flow into the Blackwater Estuary. The Dengie peninsula lies between the estuaries of the Crouch and Blackwater. It includes the largest, continuous area of tidal and saltmarsh in Essex, which is home to rare coastal flora and some of the best bird watching in England. Features of the Dengie enjoyed by walkers include solitude and many miles of seawall, from which can be seen thousands of over wintering geese and rare Marsh Harriers. There is some civilisation, however, with welcoming pubs selling good food and local beers
