This is a walk through Constable Country - the typical rural English countryside made famous by the paintings of John Constable. The walk heads past the scene of his most famous work, Flatford Mill on the River Stour. Starting from Dedham, it's easy riverside walking near the border of Suffolk and Essex to the town of Manningtree. An interesting extension of the walk takes you to Mistley, with the curious Mistley Towers. Regular buses to Dedham from Colchester, and trains back from Mistley.
