Overview

Park and meet: roadside parking in Hatchfields, a turning off Chelmsford Road on the eastern side of the village. We visit one of the most attractive scenarios in Essex; Langleys, a country house built in 1719 with its farm buildings, the Chelmer and, in February (hopefully), a mass of snowdrops. No stiles. The Stores café is available for the end of the walk and we may visit an unusual pub halfway round.
