Mountnessing March

posted in: Walking | 0

Not a lot to say about this walk really, except it is getting really difficult to name them.  I am going to have to go with the slightly dull, but nevertheless alliterative, Mountnessing March.

The actual route is based on Brentwood Council’s 6.5 mile long  Ingatestone & Mountessing Countryside Walk .  As I am trying to avoid driving to walks, mine is extended so I can start and finish at home, but technically, the start is at Ingatestone Hall, which has ample parking.

Unfortunately my new Brashers didn’t get a maiden voyage this week.  Having run out of ideas of how to clean the centimetre deep Donington mud from my Merrells, I decided to see if I could walk them clean.  This wasn’t entirely unsuccessful, and I now feel confident that I won’t have to burn them any time soon.

On a mildly nerdy note, I used Runtastic to record the walk which shows each kilometre marker and gives a table of how quickly I walked them.  I haven’t forsaken my Memory Map device, but with very little charge I thought I would use my phone instead.
