Blackwater Rail Trail
Map Ref: TL847 080 to TL825 149 Maldon to Witham
This is a beautiful walk along a disused railway line between Witham and Maldon in Essex.
The route passes through the pretty village of Langford and includes views of the River Blackwater and a riverside section along the River Chelmer into Maldon.
At the southern end lies the old disused railway platform of Langford Halt, which we have renovated with help from Tescos Bags of Help scheme. Improvements were made to the surface of the footpath, four benches installed and two interpretation boards added depicting the history of the area and the flora and fauna that can be seen in the area.
It has been designated a Local Wildlife Site through the Essex Wildlife Sites Project (reference number MA25 Blackwater Rail Trail). The Blackwater Rail trail (Maldon to Witham line) is covered by the set of Essex Country park byelaws.
