|Walk #4 Arriving by Train|
Main Features of the Railway Walk.
This circular walk starts at Manningtree Station, which has a frequent train service from London (Liverpool Street), journey time about 60 minutes. The walk takes visitors to the semi-tidal section of the River Stour and progresses up the south bank of the river to Dedham village. On the way, at Flatford, scope exists for walkers to make a short detour to visit Bridge Cottage (with a small, free Constable exhibition) and view the dry dock together with Flatford Mill and Willie Lott's Cottage. From Dedham village the route progresses southwards to the southern edge of Dedham Vale. It then swings eastwards, giving frequent fine views across the valley, and passing Lawford Church. After this there is a descent to the valley floor (near Manningtree railway station).
Approximate Distance - About 7 1/2 miles.
Approx. Completion Time - About 4 hours
