This is the first Photographic Walk organised by Art Plumstead. Although it is intended to be a photographic walk, it will be suitable for anyone who draws or paints from photographs, and could prove inspirational for writers of any description. Even if you have no intention of creating anything as a result, why not come along and enjoy the experience of being part of a group walk? You may see sights you’ve never seen before! We will meet outside The Old Mill at 11am on Sunday, 2nd September, setting off at 11.10am. Bring suitable clothing, especially footwear, and a fully charged camera.
This walk will take us to the Old Vicarage, before dipping down into the Conservation Area. It continues across the Common to the Slade Pond, then to Winn’s Common, detouring into the wild area adjacent to Bleak Hill Lane, into the Wildflower Meadow, taking in part of the Green Chain Walk as it slopes down to Wickham Lane, then returning along the northern edge of the Common to take in sweeping views over Essex, before ending at The Old Mill.
The walk is somewhat over a mile long, but be aware there are a lot of steps to be negotiated. Having said that, it is possible to bypass these or ‘sit out’ where they occur at each end of the Common, before rejoining the walk.
