Change to route description of Stage 7

Hi folks,

We went out this weekend and checked the route from West Bergholt to Dedham.
We bumped into some Benfleet runners and saw some Harwich peeps at the monument.
We found some alterations had to be made throughout the route and I have e-mailed Graeme with the chances.
There are no changes to the route, just some houses which have been re-painted and some new marker posts installed, but thought we should start as we mean to go on.

With regards to parking, we suggest that runners park in New Church Road and the adjacent Memorial Hall which is off Chapel Road, TL 959279 and walk 5 minutes backwards down The Essex Way to the church for the start. This will save alot of hassle at the farm and down the lane, and will hopefully ease our relationship with the locals.
Please ask your runners to car share as much as possible, as we don't want to jeopordise the event, and pass on this info.

Cheers,

Sarah C

Re: Change to route description of Stage 7

Please, please could runners be sensible and park away from the church. We really can't accomodate the quantity of cars down the lane. There have been complaints in the past. There are penty of alternatives off Lexden Road where the enclosed footpath on paragraph 1 crosses into New Church Rd.
Everyone who has route checked this leg will know where I mean. It's a 5 min walk to the start from there.

Re: Change to route description of Stage 7

Another year, another route check and this time on LEG 7, there are a couple of slight direction changes.
I have e-mailed Graeme the updated route, and I'm sure he will change the current one to the corrected one.
It won't be much of a change to those who know this route, but it may help those who need to use the route notes to navigate on the day.
