Footpaths in Hatfield Peverel
Back in 1993, Catherine Voysey produced a small 24 page booklet titled “Nine Walks Around Hatfield Peverel”. This was dedicated to her late husband, Martin Voysey, who had been a staunch campaigner in maintaining the paths around the village and preserving them for future generations. Here is an article that he wrote for the Review back in 1974:

Not surprisingly, some of the paths have changed since the early nineties. Although most of the booklet is correct, there are some inaccuracies. This has meant that revisions to the text (and sketch maps) have needed to be made. The updated walks are now shown separately below. They are simply numbered in the order that they appeared in the first booklet. Please look at the map which gives you an idea of the locations of all of the paths, click on one of the paths that interests you below, print it off, and get exploring the wonderful countryside that we have around our village!
Click on the path title and you should get a printable pdf of the walk:
