The Uttlesford Way in Essex has been devised by local resident Peter Cooper, and is an innovative idea in that it links 16 short circular walks in such a way that they form a continuous circular route which can be followed either way (or both) and start from any point along the route. To walk the whole length both ways is a total of 127 miles (201km).
The book that describes the Uttlesford Way, Discover Uttlesford, starts at Stansted Mountfitchet Station and explores rural North-west Essex. Heading in a clockwise direction, it goes through the attractive villages of Manuden and Clavering, before getting well away from civilisation as it makes its way round to Great Chesterford. It then follows the Icknield Way towards historic Hadstock Church, then onto Ashdon and the ancient market town of Thaxted with its Guildhall, large church and windmill. The final part of the walk meanders around villages back to the start, visiting Debden, Henham and Elsenham.
The Uttlesford Way is mainly on footpaths and bridleways and in undulating countryside, offering fine views, varied scenery including several ancient woodlands and plenty of wild life. No large urban areas are visited, even though you are within 50 miles of London..
