• Wild swimming in the River Stour
• Enjoying a refreshment in beautiful Dedham
• Following the best of The Essex Way
Having done a few Vespucci hikes before we decided to try the new ‘The Only Way in Essex’ pack. The map and accompanying information was great and easy to follow. The route was charming, and we greatly enjoyed roaming through ‘Constable Country’ and learning about the history of Flatford Mill and the surrounding area. Another great Vespucci walk!
