'Circular walk, based on Leigh-on-Sea railway station, includes a climb to see the ruins of Hadleigh Castle, a walk along Benfleet Downs and a return walk along Benfleet Creek alongside Hadleigh Marsh.' ALERT This Entry formerly referenced an 'Essex Pub Walk': Leigh-on-Sea & Hadleigh Castle Walk  But since the relevant Website seems no longer, I have replaced it with a 'Saturday Walkers Club' Walk.

'Long distance footpath just over 71 miles in length stretching all the way from Southend-on-Sea in the south east of the county to Saffron Walden in the north west.'  ALERT The well-established Website Essex Walks was sadly no longer 'live' at Review.
