Road currently ( 6 March 2022) flooded between Mablets and Great Penny's Farm. Not passable on foot for about fifteen yards - verge submerged....
Buses available at A1184 so it's possible to split this route in half....
An easy to follow, calm path that runs alongside the river Stort for the whole route. For the most part it's a calm and serene walk, however some sections are less so (to be expected given it's a stone's throw from Stansted Airport!).

There are two pubs with food and drinks at Hudson which is around 40 percent into the route walking from the west....
