A new book ‘Thundersley on foot – nine walks of discovery around a suburban Essex village‘ was launched in style on Sunday Nov 7th when more than 20 locals and other friends gathered at the White Hart for Walk No 1 in the book which took them across Thundersley Common and back down the lovely Goldfinch Lane – ignoring the traffic noise of the A127 which tried to creep into our heads for a few minutes half way round the walk!
Seasoned walkers claimed it was more of a stroll than a walk – true really because it was less than 2 miles – but what it lacked in length it more than made up for in beauty (Autumnal colours all the way) and fun. Back at the pub we had a couple ofÂ jolly hours tucking into lunch and the odd drink – a good time was had by all!.
Its hoped to start a small walking group in the New Year to step out a bit further and try out the other 8 walks in the book.Â Get in touch with Eileen (01268 752264) if you are interested in joining in with that.
The book, priced at Â£3.50, is available in Thundersley village from The White Hart, Dan’s Supermarket and Village Cards, and is also available from the Book Inn, Broadway West, Leigh-on-Sea.
Or call Eileen Peck on 01268 752264. If you belong to a group and would like to ‘bulk’ buy then a small commission could be agreed.
