Sheering Walks take place twice a year at Christmas and Easter. For more details see the Sheering News.
Sheering Country Walk
A leaflet is now available from Epping Forest Countrycare showing a Sheering Country Walk.
The walk is an attractive 7 1/2 mile circular walk off the Stort Valley Way taking approximately 5 hours to complete. Alternatively it could be split into two shorter circuits; the northern circuit is 3 3/4 miles long and the southern one is 5 miles. The footpaths on the walk are in good condition, but they will become muddy after wet weather. There is a small amount of road walking involved along main roads.
Walking in Essex
The author of Walking in Essex, Peter Aylmer, has recently moved to Sheering.
Peter’s guidebook describes 25 coastal and inland day walks covering the whole of the county of Essex, stretching from the Lea Valley in the west and the Thames in the south over to the North Sea and up to the River Stour in the north. The walks range from 4 to 18 miles, are mostly circular and suitable for all abilities with shorter alternatives for many of the longer routes.
Each walk is described step-by-step, illustrated with OS map extracts and packed with historical, and geological information about the landscape the route passes through.
Also included is a description of the Essex Way which crosses the county in 11 stages from Manor Park, on the fringes of London, to the port of Harwich – a distance of 96 miles.
None of the walks go through Sheering itself but Walk 12 ‘Moreton and the Matchings’ and Walk 13 ‘The River Stort at Harlow’ go very close!
