Tollesbury Walk

Dave J

A 10.5 mile walk around the coast north of Tollesbury, described as the epitome of Essex coastal marshland. Sea, bird and plant life all flourish here and the view changes as the tide ebbs and flows. We will pass through Old Hall Marches RSPB reserve with a variety of habitats to support a variety of bird life. Bring sandwiches for lunch but possible pub/tea shops on our return to Tollesbury, Lots of great sky and sea views guaranteed!

Meet in Woodrolfe Road, CM9 8SE. 10.30 start
