Essex Way Stuff

This is not intended to duplicate the official site, http://www.essexway.org.uk/  administered by Graeme, but it provides additional or more up-to-date information.

Here are my gpx files for each section for download to import into phones, gps unite etc

There are two versions, a Route with lots of blobby markers and a Track without, use whichever you prefer

(if it opens in a window on your browser, ignore the gobbledegook, and save using the file name and .gpx extension without editing anything.)

ROUTE      TRACK

If there is a route change that I don't know about that makes any of the gpx files, or the maps on the "official site", out of date please let me know by email to info@thurrocknomads.org.uk , thanks.

Blast from the past: Monday 27th August 2007 we walked the last two stages of the Essex Way from Bradfield to Harwich. Here are some of the group relaxing on the Nomad's Bench.
