Things to do in Braintree

Flitch Way – Walk 4 in our Essex and South Suffolk Railway Walks

The Flitch Way is a country park converted from a disused former railway line.

This is a safe, traffic-free environment for walkers, cyclists and in some sections, horse riders. A variety of landscapes and habitats can be found along the Flitch Way ranging from open stretches affording views of farmland on either side of the track to enclosed areas such as the Dunmow Cutting. This walk starts at Braintree Station, at the start of the Flitch Way and finishes at Rayne where there is a Booking Hall café and a Railway Carriage Museum. A very enjoyable walk with beautiful countryside in abundance.
