Once upon a time in 2015 I decided to become an OutdoorLads walk leader.  Having completed my assessment I set up my first walk to lead - slightly nervous, very excited and happy to be able to take a group of guys on a lovely route, this route, which is one of my favourite Essex Walks, so I'm really looking forward to re-leading it as first ODL walk since lock down.

This walk starts and ends in the sleepy village of Stock and includes the village of Galleywood, which is located between Billericay and Chelmsford. Although it involves a little road walking it's a nice walk that we can treat as more of a ramble around some lovely Autumn time countryside.

As mentioned, I've done this walk once before and it's a really nice day out without being too demanding and at just under 7 miles it's a hearty, but not too lenghty-a route and I like to keep my walks at a pace that suit everyone in the group - dogs are also welcome providing they're on leads when they need to be.  

Micro Events – IMPORTANT, Please read the following before you sign up to this event:

  • Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who lives or is in a support bubble with someone showing symptoms, is asked not to attend. This is in line with the government’s coronavirus advice.
  • All are required to practice social distancing – staying 2m (not 1m) apart at all times, including the lunch stop.
  • Please join events within around one hour’s travel from your home, rather than travelling longer distances to get there.
  • Unfortunately, there won’t be any planned pub / café stops en route or at the end, and please don’t share sweets or snacks with others – we’re sorry!
  • Public transport use to the start point is discouraged, as this is a non-essential journey. No car sharing to the start point unfortunately either.
  • Please bring your own hand sanitising gel for your own use throughout the day. Use of face coverings is at your own choice.
  • Each person can only attend one OutdoorLads micro event a week. (Leaders to leave at least three days between events they lead.)
  • On walks, one person to hold open gates and allow everyone to walk through – so minimising surfaces that multiple people touch. 
  • Be aware that opportunities for toilet stops may be minimal if facilities are closed.
  • Please, please cancel at your earliest opportunity if you are unable to attend or are unwell, so that we can allow others to take up these valuable event spaces.
  • Much as it's difficult - no handshakes or hugs!
