Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Hockley (A Guided Walk in Hockley)

[An image showing Hockley]"Hockley" is one of the Guided Walks devised and led by Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.

Colin lives in Leicester now, but was born in Rochford and lived locally for many years.

These gentle strolls are a first class way of soaking up some Local History.

This walk looks at the village of Hockley, which was the subject of a failed attempt to create a spa but grew with commuter housing in the 20th century.

It begins outside Hockley Station, and takes a fascinating stroll through the village itself, as well as part of Hockley Woods and other lesser known woodland.
