Doddinghurst Walks


Doddinghurst and the surrounding villages have the opportunity for a lot of very pleasant circular walks which are mostly easy to follow with the help of signposts or as part of a walking group.

Find your way around the footpaths  within Doddinghurst Parish using these maps and description

We have a number of walk leaders trained under Brentwood Council's TRAX Walking for Health scheme. They organise walks every week throughout the year. The walks start at Doddinghurst Village Hall every Wednesday at 10.00. The walks are planned to last for about 1 to 1.5 hours and keep up a pace which just allows for conversation. Distance varies depending on weather and footpath conditions, but is often around 3 miles . A few walks involve climbing over stiles Anyone from the neighbouring areas is welcome to come along and there is no charge

Covid-19 impact:

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the toilets in the Village Hall are currently unavailable

On our walks we will be observing social distancing and we will take a contact register for use for contact tracing. We also recommend that everyone wears gloves or brings hand gel for use after touching stiles, gates or other walkers' equipment.

Some footpaths have become overgrown or blocked due to high winds this summer. We would welcome any updates to the following list of path status by text message (or WhatsApp) to 07585924376
