Easy walk which took us around 2 and a half hours. A bit muddy at the beginning as walking in December and there are muddy parts throughout alongside fields and farmland. Good directions although we went clovkwise rather than anti clockwise. Worth diverting to Greensted church (but take off boots or wear free plastic bags provided). Church sells lovely cards, books, jams etc but take cash and some change. Not much road walking and very peaceful walk. Free toilets near start and easy free parking.
