Enjoy the sights of picture perfect villages by bike

Coggeshall, Essex

Cycle through the picturesque villages of Coggeshall, Finchingfield and The Hedinghams taking in their historical sights.


The full cycle route is 87km/54 miles but there are many short ride options and lovely places to stop for a bite to eat along the route.

Coggeshall is a lovely old town made up of nearly 2000 listed buildings dating from as far back as the 14th century. Stop off at Coggeshall Grange Barn or Paycocke’s House & Garden to discover more about the town’s history.

At Finchingfield you’ll discover an idyllic English village with a duck pond, village green, hump-backed bridge and pub overlooked by colour-washed cottages, a windmill and a medieval church giving it a spectacular series of views.

Castle Hedingham’s ‘real’ history begins with the Norman’s. The village was granted to one of William, duke of Normandy’s lords, one Aubrey de Vere. Although he and his descendants built a number of castles at various locations, they chose Hedingham as their primary seat.
