Essex Walks: Greensted and Ongar footpaths

Last Saturday I drove to Greensted where I angle-parked the car by the ancient Saxon church.

After visiting the allegedly oldest wooden church in the world, as a result of dendrological analysis,

 I walked along the footpaths in sweet, uneventful countryside, beloved by the late poet laureate Sir John Betjeman, to Ongar.

What a beautiful day it was!

Thorndon Hall is just about visible from the Essex Way

The privately run railway was operating this Saturday.

To be continued, in part two.

At Chipping Ongar there are the remains of a motte and bailey castle,
and a footpath lead me to an eleventh century church, close to the centre of the town.
