Join us aboard the Halloween train for a fun packed spooktacular ride from Manningtree to Harwich and return, where you will find our specially decorated carriage promising fun for children and adults as we wind our way along the Mayflower Line.
The Ghostly Service leaves Manningtree at 16:26 and 17:26 from Manningtree, where characters on board will bring the spooky special event to life. Children will be able to take part in games and activities with Yucky Dips, Name the Ghost, guess the weight of the pumpkin and activity packs to complete as the train travels along the Mayflower Line.
Join us on Sunday 23 October 2016 10.15am as we take a guided walk from Marks Tey Station to Chappel via Great Tey, taking in part of the Essex Way.
The walk is around 5.4 miles in total and at Chappel you can visit the Swan pub for a drink and lunch. You then have the option to carry on walking to Bures (also guided), or if the 5.4 miles is just right for you then catch the train from Chappel & Wakes Colne Station back to Marks Tey. Alternatively you could hop on the train to the market town of Sudbury.
