Rochford and Hawkwell (A Guided Walk in Rochford)

"Rochford and Hawkwell" is one of the many popular Guided Walks devised and led by Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours, who was born in Rochford.

These strolls are a most enjoyable way of soaking up some Local History.

The walk starts outside the Former Public Library, which is situated in the Market Square in the historic old town of Rochford.

Having walked down West Street and a little way along the Ashingdon Road, the route branches off along Ironwell Lane, a delightful green lane which astonishingly was once the coach road between Southend and London.

Having reached Hawkwell, the route returns to Rochford via Stroud Green and passing Rochford Hall, once the home of the ill fated Anne Boleyn.
