The Forest Way links two forests and several open spaces in south-west Essex. From the edge of Epping Forest (Loughton) it runs north over farmland, from where there are views over the Lea Valley, and then crosses Latton and Harlow Commons to Hatfield Heath, Woodside Green and the Hatfield Forest. At the end the walk meets with the waymarked Flitch Way (15 miles and on OS mapping) which follows the track of a former railway between Braintree and Bishops Stortford.If walked end to end it is approximately 25 miles in length.
Our next Spring holiday has now been arranged for Weymouth, which is situated some 120 miles from London half-way along the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the south coast of England. Our hotel, the Fairhaven, is located on the Weymouth Esplanade overlooking the bay and near the historic fishing harbour.
The price of the holiday is £269 per person and includes en-suite accommodation and half-board (Full English breakfast and a choice of evening meal). All rooms have colour television and tea/coffee making facilities. Additionally, a wine reception is included, as is coach travel, with toilet, to and from Weymouth and all the necessary transport to the walks each day. (Holiday insurance is recommended – please make your own arrangements).
When booking, please consider pairing up with a friend and show this on your booking slip because single rooms are as usual very limited. This holiday is again being organised through Isle of Wight Tours Ltd and more information about the hotel can be found on its website.
There will be a choice of either a long or a short walk on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, a short walk on the Monday en route to the hotel and perhaps a short walk on the Friday morning prior to departure. Pick up Points:
