This walk has been cancelled

As at the 19th March the Vange Marsh area is flooded with horrendous mud in places. There is also a dangerously damaged bridge and a severely overgrown section of path, which has been reported to Essex County Council as that section also forms part of the England Coast Path. With the forecast being for more rain in the next 3 weeks the mud and flooding are unlikely to improve.
