What to expect on the day
Take the shorter 2km walk for a gentle stroll through the Pleasure Gardens which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 7km walk is more challenging, weaving through grassland, open fields and woodland paths, therefore not suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Don’t forget your wellies and walking boots! Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.
All routes will start and finish in the field by Writtle entrance car park, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note the event site is on grass. Take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for by leaving a message on the Memory Tree, and watch it blossom through the day.
How to get there
Memory Walk will start and finish in the field by Writtle entrance car park.
