Do you ever wonder how much a place has changed? Well if you follow this link http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side you can see a current map side by side with a choice of old maps of the same area. Makes fascinating viewing

Change of start location

posted 6 Sep 2017, 00:45 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 6 Sep 2017, 00:45 ]

Due to a mix up I published a change of start recently for the wrong walk. Please ignore any instructions to park in the village hall at Terling on 3rd. October.
However Chris has obtained permission to use Pleshey Village Hall car park for his walk on 19th. September so the start of that walk is changed. The new postcode is CM3 1HA. After the walk the lunch will be in the "Leather Bottle" for those who would like to stay.
Apologies for the confusion.

OS Grid Ref Finder

Walk leaders. When putting on a walk it is very important to get the correct OS grid reference to your walk or meeting place to make sure everybody can find it.
Knowing that this can be a problem I have recently found this website https://www.gridreferencefinder.com/
All you need to do is zoom into the required spot and right click on your mouse. The six figure grid reference required for the Ramblers website will then appear (with a lot of other data) on your screen.

Walk to Remember

posted 21 Jul 2017, 11:42 by Ralph Burtonshaw

On Sunday 10th September, it is the 10th anniversary of our annual Havens to Havens Walk.
You can choose between either a 5 or 10 mile route, starting from Little Havens Hospice in Thundersley at 11am and walking through Hadleigh, Old Leigh and along Chalkwell’s coastline.
You will then be invited to join us for a delicious cream tea at the midway point, Fair Havens Hospice in Westcliff.
You can then either get the free bus back or you can walk the further 5 miles back to Little Havens.
 
Tickets for this event are £10 for adults, and £5 for children between 3-12 years.
All ticket prices include the cream tea and your entry fee helps us to raise vital funds for both Fair Havens Hospice and Little Havens Hospice.
Please note that pushchairs/wheelchairs are permitted for this event, and dogs on leads are welcomed.
 
Thank you in advance for your help – please don’t hesitate to get in touch on 01702 220337 if you have any questions or would like any more information.
The easiest way to sign up is online here and we also allow sign ups on the day at Little Havens from 9:30am.
