Autumn 2021

Welcome to this special Autumn edition of Essex Explorer Magazine in association with the Active Essex, Find Your Active campaign. As well as our usual beautiful photography, seasonal features and competitions, this issue is packed full of walking tips, routes, and inspirational ideas for keeping active and healthy.

We’re also very excited to confirm that this issue will be available for FREE in print from w/c 11 October at 50 supermarkets and 30 libraries across the county, as well as some of our Essex Country Parks and heritage site visitor centres. Check out the full list of where you can pick up a copy here.

In this edition we seek to inspire you to get out and about with some of our favourite autumnal walks both in our parks and along Essex’s stunning estuaries and coastline. Uncover the history and heritage of Thorndon Country Park (south), read our seasonal gardening tips, download our mushroom and fungi spotters guide, and make our pumpkin soup. And much, much more.
