What to expect on the day

Take the shorter 1.5km walk for a gentle stroll through the Pleasure Gardens, which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs.  The longer 6km walk is more challenging, weaving through grassland, walking through open fields and woodland paths, therefore not suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Don’t forget your wellies and walking boots!. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change. 

All routes will start and finish at in the field by Writtle entrance car park, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note that while the short route is on tarmac, the event site is on grass.  Amongst the excitement, take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for and leave a message on the Memory Tree and watch it blossom through the day.

How to get there

Event parking is available at the Writtle Gate entrance of Hylands Park only, off Greenbury Way - please use postcode CM2 8FS. Follow the signs and stewards. Please arrive in good time to avoid queues and please note that the parking is on grass (speak to stewards about disabled parking).

The park is a 25 minute bus ride from Chelmsford rail station and the town centre. For more information you can use the public transport journey planner.
