Our Spring Wildlife Circular Walk is a lovely outing on a sunny day.
It is a self-guided walk 3miles (4.83km) around Waltham Abbey gardens, Dragonfly Sanctuary and Cornmill meadows.
Starting at Epping Forest District Museum, 39-41 Sun St, Waltham Abbey EN9 1EL it takes in various habitats such as flooded grassland, ponds, rivers, and part of a site of Special Scientific interest.
Wellies are essential
Most of the walk is on grass paths that can be very muddy so wellies or sturdy shoes are essential. It is all on the flat with a few bridges, but some parts are uneven in places.
Depending on your walking speed and what you stop to look at, this walk takes an average of one and a half hours.
Please observe COVID-19 restrictions of social distancing and rule of six when undertaking the walk.
Copies of this walk are available by email from Community Engagement Officer Karen Murray
