Essex & the Thames Estuary Cycle Map
This area map shows the National Cycle Network and local routes in this area. It covers the Essex & Thames area of the East of England, including Colchester, Clacton-on-Sea, Basildon, Gravesend and Sheerness.
Essex’s gently rolling landscape is a place of contrasts. The noise and industry of the Thames Estuary opens out into 350 coastal miles of hidden sandy beaches and vibrant seaside towns with mudflats and estuaries attracting protected bird species and rich in wildlife. Essex is said to be England’s oldest county so look out for the tallest Tudor Gatehouse in England, the historic Roman town of Colchester, and some ancient castles.
This pocket-sized colour map shows clearly mapped on-road and traffic-free paths, easy to read contours, and detailed inset maps for the major towns and cities as well as recommended linking routes connecting the NCN with quiet roads. The map also features 5 day rides with directions and a description of the area, highlighting key cycle routes, local history and places of interest.
