New walk!

We are trialling a new walk on Sunday 9 June. It will set off at 2pm from the car park at Channels, Pratts Farm Lane, Chelmsford, CM3 3PT. It will be a one-off for now, but we hope to run it again if it's successful. This walk is only suitable for those who are able to do a 60 minute walk at a moderate speed.

Chelmer Village offers a number of route options with the regular walk following paved or tarmacked residential paths, via Brook End Gardens or The Green.  

There are no steps, but options to walk across grass when the route is dry so there is some uneven ground, making it buggy friendly but unsuitable for wheelchairs. Toilets are available at Asda.  

Please note that, for each walk, a specific route has been agreed and risk assessed to provide the safest walking environment possible. This cannot be changed.

  • This walk runs every Monday at 11am
