I should have known better. Tired from the night before I was obviously caught off guard. After all these years I should have been known that when my husband, possibly soon to be ex-husband, invited me to go for a walk on New Year's day, it wasn't going to be a stroll in the park.
The fact that he'd taken a ruck sack, a GPS gizmo, two pairs of thinsulate gloves and a few pairs of waterproof socks, possibly gave the game away but, the penny still hadn't dropped. As I've mentioned in previous posts Essex does have some hidden gems and whilst this walk was longer than expected it was probably one of the best I've been on in a while.
Our walk, no I mean Yomp starts at the Bell at Woodham Walter. A lovely looking pub with lots of lucky people enjoying a pint and some wholesome food. Unfortunately, neither of us had taken any money! The Bell is where this walk starts and ends. The pub dates back to the 16th Century.
