Harcamlow Way 9 - Eastwick (A414) to Standon 23/08/16

We rejoined the towpath of the River Stort near Eastwick and headed towards Roydon along a path well sheltered from the sun, passing Roydon Lock on the way. From Royson Station we headed north passing under the A414. The rest of the walk was in open Essex/Hertfordshire countryside passing to the east of Ware. We also passed Cold Christmas which was somewhat ironic since it was the hottest day of the year!. From Ware we followed the Greenwich Meridian Trail which runs from Peacehaven in Sussex to Spurn Head on the Humber estuary. At 275 miles this is probably not one the Trail Walkers will be attempting!! We crossed the River Rib at Barwick Ford as we headed for our destination at Standon
