STORT VALLEY WAY - To celebrate my young birthday, yesterday, I walked the supposed 28 mile Stort Valley Way in Essex, from Roydon. A beautiful day, first beside the River Stort Navigation for 8 miles to Sawbridgeworth, then to many small attractive villages - Matching, Matching Tye, edge of Harlow, Naezing and back to Roydon. I clocked with GPS 33 miles! I was walking by 7.45am and fininshed twelve hours later. Although I had walked different sections on different walks, I had not done it one go ......... glad I did. Surprisingly I saw no one all day!
Over Bank Holiday I shall be walking the Jubilee Walkway in London - 60km - again never walked it its own right, only in stages.
Below are a few photos from the walk.
