WEDNESDAY 14th FEBRUARY - THE ESSEX HIGHLANDS TOUR INCLUDING MORNING COFFEE AND ONE COURSE LUNCH.

We aim to arrive in Arkesden “the gem of the Essex Highlands” at 10.30am where we will meet our blue badge guide and enjoy morning coffee & biscuits. Then we are off for a scenic tour of the “Essex Highlands” to dispel the notion of Essex as a flat county. In fact we slip in and out of three counties during our circular tour and from high in the coach we will have lovely views and there are interesting stories to create a thoroughly entertaining morning.
 Arriving back in Arkesden we'll enjoy a tasty steak pie lunch and join the guide for a little stroll and peek inside the village church. After lunch we will drive past Audley End House into Saffron Walden, opt to join our guide for a short town trail or browse on your own. Whichever you choose there'll be time to buy a cup of tea before heading home at approx 4.45pm.
