Tendring CAMRA - RambAle 5a - Waggon, Wix to White Hart, Weeley Heath

The route

Route 5a was a late change to the planned route for RambAle 5 when the Maybush shut after route 5 had been planned and tested. The two routes meet west of Beaumont Hall, with the route from Wix being a little longer.

The route begins at the Waggon in Wix, takes footpaths through Beaumont to Thorpe-le-Soken, then takes more footpaths (which cross the railway line) into Weeley Heath.

Estimated timings

Based on previous RambAle's estimates are based on 4km per hour rounded to the next 15 minute interval, with a half hour stop per pub.

Route 5a is 8.1 miles from the Waggon to the White Hart, so will take about 4.75 hours to reach the White Hart allowing for three stops in Thorpe-le-Soken. Leaving at 12:30 assume we'll get to the White Hart at about 17:15.

Approximate distances:

  • Waggon, Wix to Rose & Crown, Thorpe-le-Soken - 5.3mi (8.6km)
  • Rose & Crown, Thorpe-le-Soken to Crown/Bell, Thorpe-le-Soken - 0.2mi (0.4km)
