Latest Updates

It is a 60mph link between villages and the airport, in places it narrows down dangerously. The edges and verge are rutted and fragmented but the enormous trucks that race along here....

Walk this route

You come off to cross the A1250 and in theory go straight into a park, however the entrance is currently closed (I think they may be working on the river bridge) but if you walk east a few yards and recross the river you can turn into the park there and rejoin the route. The walking is firm underfoot and suitable for pushchairs and bikes until you get to Johnson’s Bridge where it starts to get a bit softer and by the time you cross the River Stort again it is getting a bit muddy in places. Traffic travelling westbound on the A120 is slightly obscured by trees but you can see far enough to cross safely – this wouldn’t be a problem if you were travelling the route in the opposite direction....

I suggest taking a short detour at the start of the first footpath in Stansted to avoid steep steps and a very overgrown section of footpath for the first approximately 50 metres....

I enjoyed walking this route apart from the section around Molehill Green which involved walking on a busy road with no pavement and limited verges. For this reason I would not recommend it goes on the network and have suggested an alternative route....

To be honest if one must walk to Stansted from the station I would take the main road and once beyond the A120 roundabout towards Stansted take extra care as oncoming traffic, particularly lorries and large vans, drive close to the pavement due the road width....

Walk this route

The route from the Historic Market Town of Saffron Walden to Widdington is good & easy to follow as it mainly follows a section of the Harcamlow Way. From Widdington we would suggest a number of improvements in order to align this route more closely to the SlowWays methodology. Our suggestions would make this route safer, more accessible, reduction to road sections,pass additional rail link, be easier to navigate & be more enjoyable....
