Over the 2 hours Chris & his partner Jude plan to cover just a slow stroll of 600 metres as there is so much to see on this grass and scrub-land site which is rich in wildflowers and insects.

Lower Lodge was farmland up until the 1980s, and it is managed by sections cut every 3 years, plus paths cut. It has great views over the Colne valley. (The site is continuous with Wivenhoe Woods & Ferry Marsh).
