Flitch Way

Essex

24 km / 15 miles
The Flitch Way passes through 15 miles of countryside along the former Bishops Stortford to Braintree railway in the heart of rural Essex. Your journey on foot, bicycle or horseback will take you through wildlife-rich railway cuttings, past Victorian stations, over embankments with views across impressive farmlands, nearby villages and woodland.

Work is under way to improve the route around Great Dunmow. See Friends' website for details.
