Length: 4.9 mi • Est. 2 h 20 m
A circular pub walk from The Anchor in the village of Danbury, Essex. The Anchor is the epitome of an English Country Inn, boasting beautiful traditional beams and a warm welcoming atmosphere, the perfect setting for post-walk refreshments. The walking route explores the network of beautiful commons, woodlands and heaths that surround the village. Along the way there are captivating views and plenty of wildlife to discover. You will enjoy bluebells in the spring, birdsong in the summer, rich woodland colors in the autumn and frost-covered heather in the winter months. The walk includes several climbs and descents throughout. The woodland stretches can be very muddy after rain and in the wetter months, so good boots are a must (and wellies with grips are recommended in winter). There are a few stretches along village lanes, so take care of traffic at these points. You will need to negotiate some kissing gates, but there are no stiles and no livestock on route. The commons have a complex network of multiple paths so follow the app for navigation. Show more
