The Sea Wall Walk

20+ miles

A sea wall extends around the perimeter of the Dengie 100 with walking in either direction from North Fambridge in the South to Mundon in the north. Shorter walks can be gained at various stages on the sea wall.

Burnham on Crouch Town Walk 

The walk starts in the spacious High Street opposite the Clock Tower which was erected in 1877 by public subscription to the memory of Laban Sweeting who was a philanthropic local resident.

Walk along High Street to the East passing quaint red brick or Essex Weather board cottages.

At the Victoria Inn turn right into Belvedere Road until you reach the Quay.

To the left you will see the imposing Royal Corinthian Yacht Club which is one of the most senior yacht clubs in the country.

Turn west on the Quay past the Royal Burnham Yacht Club and the Town Steps where you will have to resist the temptation to take a River Cruise or enjoy a drink at the Olde White Harte Hotel.

The Quay used to be a bustling little port importing various goods including tea and exporting oysters and farming goods via schooners and Thames sailing barges. The houses on the Quay reflect theis fine past.

Follow the winding Quay past Millfields Recreation Park and you will arrive at Burnham Yacht Harbour, which will be full of craft ranging from small yachts to ocean going racing yachts.

The footpath will take you around the Yacht Harbour and  you will be able to see the lifeboat house which is home to an Atlantic Class Lifeboat and an inshore rescue inflatable on the far side of the harbour.

Either retrace your steps or continue along the metalled road ( Foundry lane) until you rwach a main crossroads with Fiveways Supermarket on the left.

At this junction turn right (Station Road) and follow this road until you reach your starting point.
