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.  For anyone thinking about becoming a walk leader this would be the perfect opportunity to co-lead with me, hold the map and get some experience so feel free to drop me a message if you'd like to.

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.  The White Hart pub towards the end of the route is perfect for some refreshments / food and there are also a number of pubs in Stock itself that will be happy to serve you a pint of something local.

**Transport - Please note**

For those of your using public transport, this walk route uses buses rather than the railway network. It starts and ends at the centre of Stock on the 100 bus route from  Chelmsford -20 mins to Stock (you can also do this from Billericay but please be warned there is a rail replacement service on the Liverpool St to Billericay line that day)

For drivers, these is no specific parking area but there are nearby roads you can park on.  Advice would be to see if you can lift share so please use the comments
