|Edwards Hall Park Circular|
|Author: , Published: 01 Jun 2012||Walk Rating:|
|A short circular walk through farmers fields and a variety of local woods, through the Roach Valley. The walk has a few fairly gentle slopes and the paths can be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles.|
Park at Edward Hall Park car park, at the top of Bosworth Road from Rayleigh Road (the A1015). Approximate post code SS9 5AD.
|Start to Sewage Works Bridge|
Start point: 51.576 lat, 0.6479 long
Leave the car park and go left and around the edge of the parkland and through New England Wood to the road that leads to the sewage works. Turn right onto the road and follow the edge of the works until you reach the bridge before crossing the stream.
|Sewage Works Bridge to Hockley Wood Corner|
Start point: 51.583 lat, 0.6358 long
After crossing the bridge, follow the edge of the sewage works around to Rawreth Hall Wood and north through the fields and along the side of the farmer's field (by all the sloe bushes in the hedge). Continue up to the corner of Hockley Wood.
|Hockley Wood Corner to Roach Valley Way Junction|
Start point: 51.5905 lat, 0.6425 long
Enter the woods and take the path to your right following the blue arrows of the Roach Valley Way until you reach a large-ish junction with a fork to the left and the arrow pointing left. Don't take that, instead go straight on.
|Roach Valley Way Junction to Woodpecker Wood Car Park|
Start point: 51.5903 lat, 0.6469 long
Following the route in front, leave the woods bearing right and follow the track around some fields, up and down some dips, and around the house at the end of Gustedhall Lane. Follow the lane to the car park.
|Woodpecker Wood Car Park to Bridge|
Start point: 51.5834 lat, 0.6572 long
We call this section of the woods 'woodpecker wood' due to the large amount of woodpecker activity and birds that we have seen here. You might be lucky.
|Bridge to End|
Start point: 51.5788 lat, 0.655 long
There are various routes from here that will get you back to the car park. You can go through the Forestry Commission maintained area or around the edge and up, or even follow the bridleway around.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
