SatNav is very unhelpful so please read the following guidance. Access is a driveway from the A137 approximately 100 metres west of the 40mph speed limit sign at ‘Garden City’, Lawford. It is signed Parringtons Farm and Public Bridleway. At the bottom of the drive, turn left (signed Humberlands). The grid reference is TM075312. There is a bus stop (103/104 from Colchester) at Garden City; Humberlands is a short walk down permissive paths and bridleways from there. There is a longer but very do-able walk from Manningtree Railway station via Lawford Church.

This will be a general stroll around this lovely site with its mixed habitats, to see what we can find by way of plants, birds, insects or indeed anything in the natural history line. There will be no specific invited expertise but we hope that there will be plenty of knowledge amongst those attending that can be shared amongst us all. Weather permitting we will spend about two hours exploring the site. Depending on how things go and what the weather is like, there will most likely be the option of another hour or so in the afternoon. If you would like to stay on, please bring a picnic lunch. You will need decent footwear (some areas are quite uneven and there are lots of springs, so some spots can be permanently damp/boggy), appropriate clothing depending on the weather and maybe sun block.

Obviously the event is weather dependent. It is essential to book your place by contacting Liz Cutting who is also happy to provide any further information you need. Email preferred but those without email facilities are welcome to phone 01206 394184 and leave a message and a contact phone number if there is no reply.
